Conformed to God's image

Discovering Ourselves

It is up to each one to find and to be his or her real self. Through the study and application of Christian Science we can daily experience the triumphant and joyous unfoldment of this real self. We can begin to perceive and understand that the true and real identity of man and his inseparability from God is the Christ, which Jesus lived and demonstrated.

This identity includes all good and only good. In the Bible we find this statement: "Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is." I John 3:1, 2; Worldly knowledge cannot aid us in understanding our true natures, for it "knoweth us not." Spiritual understanding comes through the Christ, Truth, and through the spiritual teachings of the Bible and Christian Science. Then we "see him as he is" and are conformed to God's image.
