Our eternal star

An ending can often indicate a new beginning. For example, although we seem to see the morning star disappear in early daylight, we know it is still shining and will be visible again tomorrow.

In a similar way, if we fear that our work, our life, or our world is coming to an end, we need to change our standpoint. Fear is dispelled when we really accept the truth of God's spiritual creation. As we hold thought in line with the infinite perfection of God, divine Mind, we find good unfolding progressively, right where we are.

There are many biblical passages that assure us of God's continuing control over all. The Scriptures record many instances showing that as this control was glimpsed, new beginnings replaced what appeared to be terminal disasters. As one example, Jesus' appearance after his crucifixion showed that his apparent end culminated in a new recognition of his continuing life. The book of Revelation corroborates this: "I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star." Rev. 22:16. The morning star can be said to symbolize the ever-present Christ, God's spiritual idea.
