"Now is the accepted time"

"Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation," declared Paul in his second epistle to the Corinthians. "Now is." There is no "is-to-be," in reality, for God is All-in-all. He is now. All through the Scriptures we read, "God is," "God is." Not once do we find that God will not be God until to-morrow; that God will not be Love until next month. He is Love this instant; and no evidence of the material senses to the contrary can change the fact.

To make more complete cures in the practice of Christian Science, and to make them more quickly, we must realize more perfectly the omnipresent, omnipotent, and omniscient reality of God. God's creation is complete now, and the real man does now express all the qualities of God; for, as Mrs. Eddy states in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 465), "Principle and its idea is one." Man has always reflected and does now reflect all the qualities of God. Nothing shall by any means separate man for a moment from his divine Principle, or cause him to express less than all of the attributes of Principle. Nor is there any power able to cause him to express anything which is contrary to Principle, the altogether lovely and lovable God. In healing so-called chronic and incurable cases of illness, we need to remember, first of all, that there is no such thing in real existence as a chronic or incurable case. The only thing that cannot be changed by any means is the work of God, the relation of man to his divine Cause. Sickness is not a part of the changeless Being who is God; false belief is wholly mortal, changing, and self-destructive. There is, there can be, no real disease.
