Growing Up

Often someone who has had a healing in Christian Science concludes a testimony with a remark such as, "I am most grateful for the growth attained during this experience." Evidently he has had a needed and unforgettable spiritual awakening that will continue to prove invaluable to his outlook and well-being. We all can rejoice in the same type of growth—progressive steps in reform and understanding.

Through the study and application of Christian Science we grow in our understanding of God, divine Mind, and of man's relation to Him as His perfect idea. We see that true creation is wholly spiritual, never material. Therefore, in reality, man's individual identity does not consist of fleshly matter but of the incorporeal qualities of divine Love. The belief that man lives in or because of matter is a false concept of creation. This begins to disappear when we learn the allness of the one Mind. We can have only what God can give, and that is good. We need to understand the spiritual, inseparable relationship between God and His idea, man, and prove it throughout each day, wherever we are. This is growth.
