The Psalmist writes, "This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it." Is not this what we all long to do—rejoice in each new day as it is unfolded to us? But how impossible of realization this has been, and will continue to be, so long as our concept of life is based upon a belief in the reality of matter, with its so-called laws which claim to exercise dominion over man, and whose despotic control it has seemed impossible to escape. But Christian Science has come proclaiming that no one need remain in bondage to the so-called laws of matter; and students of this Science are proving for themselves and others that matter, or evil, has neither power nor reality; that all power belongs to God, good; that God, good, not evil, governs man and the entire universe; that obedience to God's laws brings harmony into our everyday experiences, and that there are no experiences of life to which the laws of God are not applicable.

On page vii of the Preface to "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," the textbook of Christian Science, Mrs. Eddy writes, "To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, to-day is big with blessings." Then it is of the greatest importance to all to gain an understanding of "the sustaining infinite," so that all may lean upon Him, and find their days "big with blessings." To do this, we must turn from the belief that life is confined in matter and controlled by so-called material law, to the understanding that Life is God, and that true existence is therefore spiritual and under the direct control of divine Mind. This understanding is now possible for all through a study of the Bible and our Leader's writings.
