The man who lives for God

Man actually lives for God. He is God's spiritual expression or idea. His whole reason for being is to reflect God. When we realize that this man constitutes our true selfhood, we can increasingly prove in our human lives that we are really living for God. And there is nothing more satisfying than providing such proof.

How can we get a better understanding of ourselves as this divinely created and motivated man? By denying the material belief that we are self-motivated mortals and by acknowledging that the divine Principle alone makes and motivates us, producing all our thoughts. We must see that divine Principle, Mind, constitutes and governs our true consciousness, or being. Since this consciousness is the reflection of the divine consciousness, the only thoughts and motives that can be present there are God's. Man is derived from God, Christian Science explains. When we see this, we find ourselves accepting God's thoughts and rejecting material sense perceptions, human beliefs, and psychological theories.
