To the earnest seeker after Truth the teaching of Christian Science is clear and comprehensive that we are at the point of perfection now. We need never wait until to-morrow, or any future time, to receive more light, more intelligence, more strength and power to accomplish: we have but to brush away the cobwebs of mortal sense, and the attributes of divine Mind are revealed as the present possession of the real man.

Since the Scriptural definition of man as God's image and likeness is true, man is seen to be the complete expression of the infinite Mind, possessing by reflection every right idea now. It is inconceivable that an image can be incomplete or lack any quality of the original; hence man has—not, may acquire—all that is needed to form God's perfect likeness. Our Leader, Mrs. Eddy, tells us in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 151), "The divine Mind that made man maintains His own image and likeness." God maintains His image by supplying man with right ideas, each being unfolded when needed. Do we, as Christian Scientists, sufficiently realize and demonstrate this great fact in the activities of everyday life?
