Self-knowledge and spiritual growth

One of the most important components to spiritual growth is self-knowledge. Throughout her writings Mary Baker Eddy mentions this concept and describes two distinct steps involved in gaining this knowledge. One is knowing our identity, our only true selfhood, as God-created.

Christ Jesus certainly knew who he was. This was the foundation for his successful healing ministry. He claimed no father but God. He was clear about his oneness with God, as God’s Son. He even said, “I and my Father are one” (John 10:30), and his consistent knowledge of his spiritual selfhood empowered him with awesome effectiveness.
