One of the glorious revelations of Christian Science is the truth that man is living his immortal life now, and we, as children of God, possess this immortal life and can experience its blessings to the fullest.
It’s impossible for mortality to constitute the individuality of God’s man, for mortality, by definition, ends in death. It is no more. If man were mortal, he would end. There would be no more evidence of his existence. Yet, Jesus Christ was sent to teach humanity that there is more, that life does not end with so-called death. It goes on in Spirit with God, and is eternal.
Eternal life is existence that has no beginning and no end. It’s like a circle. There is no starting point.
Our life with God is the same way. It does not have a starting point. It always is and always will be, which means, we are sustained by our eternal spiritual life now. Our individuality with God will never end with death.
The only thing that “dies,” is a false concept of life in matter. Our true self with God, in Spirit, goes on forever.
So, what better time to identify with your true selfhood than now! Why wait? See yourself the way God made you in the first place, as spiritual, eternal, immortal, glorious and awesome in God’s image.
Understanding immortality is what defeats the claims of mortality. It leads to spiritual healing.
Mary Baker Eddy wrote, “God is the Principle of man, and man is the idea of God. Hence man is not mortal nor material. Mortals will disappear, and immortals, or the children of God, will appear as the only and eternal verities of man” (Science and Health, p. 476).
You are an immortal child of God, this moment! Live the good life, claim the immortal, and experience its blessings.
