Take a closer look … spiritually

As I looked out my window one day, I took in the beauty of the snow that was covering all of the trees with its glistening whiteness. For a moment I thought I saw the sun shining through the dense snowfall. As I took a closer look, it turned out to be light from a tower. I thought about this in relation to Christian Science and healing: Is there a light that can shine through clouds of heaviness—a light that can reveal what is true? I can say with all sincerity that yes, there is!

Turning to God in prayer and quietly listening enables one to feel and hear God’s comforting, healing message. Spiritual light shines through fear, doubt, and worry. This message of God’s love is the Christ coming to the human consciousness. 

The Christ, which Jesus demonstrated, is here and now, always. Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy gives this spiritual definition of Christ: “The divine manifestation of God, which comes to the flesh to destroy incarnate error” (p. 583). Through listening to the message of the Christ, one learns to challenge evil, sickness, and lack with the knowledge of God’s, Spirit’s, omnipresence and goodness. Everyone can learn to do this, because our spiritual nature is that of God’s own children, reflecting His authority.
