We Have a Place

Did you ever stop to think that the right understanding of place would help solve many human problems?

I mean place in its various implications: as room, locality, position, status.

For example, what is the true "status" of man? Of you and me? Isn't it wholly spiritual? In Christian Science we seek to know that man is made in the image and likeness of God, Spirit. When we see this, then we can readily see that our real being is totally spiritual and that man lives as God's reflection. That is, his state of existence is spiritual, and he has never fallen out of it into a sense of life that is formed of and limited by matter. Material existence is a belief that life takes place somewhere apart from God. Man is forever at one with his Father, God, and his spiritual place is in God's consciousness of him. First of all, then, man's status is his spiritual sonship with God.
