"The sustaining infinite"

There is no mystery in the healing accomplished through Christian Science, however it may seem to those unacquainted with the subject. The transformations which are wrought through reliance upon God are as simple as the banishment of darkness by light, or the correction of a mistake in addition through the understanding of mathematical truth. With Christ Jesus the healing of the sick was a perfectly natural process, and every cure was accomplished by him with as much certainty as the mathematician eliminates an error with truth; therefore he could confidently say, out of his certain knowledge, "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find."

The Bible, and Mrs. Eddy's writings elucidating the Bible teachings, make it plain that just as light is waiting to enter the open window and banish the darkness within, so our God, infinite Love, divine intelligence, is waiting to enter the human heart and replace disease with health, discord with peace, and sorrow with joy. In keeping with this proved availability of the ever present healing Truth, "Our Father which art in heaven," Science and Health has for its opening sentence: "To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, today is big with blessings" (Pref., p. vii). We do not have to wait for perfection and harmony to begin; whatever good exists for man is his now.

The Master said of the sparrows, "Not one of them is forgotten before God," and then declared, "Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows." Again, in speaking of the fowls of the air, he states that "they neither sow nor reap; . . . and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls?" Jesus saw the whole truth of creation, where mortals are frequently blind to the meaning of God's work as expressed in lesser ideas; for the wise Master fully understood the intimate relationship between divine Love and all conditions of need.
