How are we formed?

From the May 2019 issue of The Christian Science Journal

In the book of Isaiah, God says of man, “I have created him for my glory, I have formed him” (43:7). How encouraging it is to learn that we each are formed for the glory of God. 

What, exactly, is the nature of our glorious form? It certainly wouldn’t be vulnerable, limited, or physical and decaying. No, God’s glory, which is present in what He forms, must be purely and vigorously good and spiritual, as God is all good and is Spirit.

The infinite Mind that is God, divine Spirit, has formed all of creation spiritually, beautifully, and precisely. And we can be grateful that divine Mind creates only perfect spiritual forms—forms of beauty, intelligence, strength, wholeness, etc. It is within God’s own consciousness, the divine consciousness, that we each are fashioned and maintained.
