As students of Christian Science, we are learning how to obtain our salvation from sin, disease, and death, our deliverance from every discordant condition known to humanity. Was not our Way-shower, Christ Jesus, ever busily engaged in preaching and demonstrating salvation as a practical, present possibility? He helped men to realize their God-given dominion over all the earth, and their right to be free from everything unlike good. He thereby justified his statement that heaven is not a far-off locality, but is always at hand, even an harmonious state of consciousness, within all the children of divine Love.

We find it recorded in the fourth chapter of Luke that in the very earliest experience of Jesus' ministry of glad tidings, he returned "to Nazareth, where he had been brought up," and entering a synagogue read from the book of the prophet Isaiah: "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord." And as he sat down he gave all to understand that the time had come for the prophetic glad tidings of salvation to be fulfilled on earth, for the glorious benefit of mankind.
