Your identity as God’s idea

As its Discoverer, Mary Baker Eddy explained the Science of Christianity to mankind through her book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. One line from that book reads: “… infinite space is peopled with God’s ideas, reflecting Him in countless spiritual forms” (p. 503). This certainly is an illuminating perspective on existence, and brings fresh meaning to the word idea. When we’re striving to find a solution, direction, or the inspiration to create something, getting a new idea is always encouraging. Then, acting on the idea—working through a process to bring it to fruition—makes it tangible.

With God’s ideas, though, it works differently. The Bible talks about the Mind that was in Christ Jesus (see Philippians 2:5). God is the divine and ever-present Mind, creator of the one true universe, an entirely spiritual universe that encompasses everyone. God, divine Spirit, is matterless, so it follows that His creation is also.
