Throughout the whole range of human existence no experience approximates the conviction, power, and joy which accompany conclusive Christian Science healing. Nothing else so instantly and decisively reveals to human thought the divine nature and beneficent character of the Supreme Being as the quick and permanent healing of some severe malady through the prayer of Christian Science. In fact, many persons have received their first satisfactory proof of God through Christian Science healing.

However, when he awoke the next morning, healed, instantly he became aware that he had touched something tremendous; that this something lay entirely beyond the ken of the physical senses; that it was wholly beneficent. Then, like a flash came the conviction, "Why, this is God!"

The nature and significance of physical healing through spiritual means have been defined with admirable insight by Mrs. Eddy in her statement (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, Pref., p. xi), "The physical healing of Christian Science results now, as in Jesus' time, from the operation of divine Principle, before which sin and disease lose their reality in human consciousness and disappear as naturally and as necessarily as darkness gives place to light and sin to reformation."
