"It is well"

With the deeply significant words, "It is well," the Shunammite mother meekly acknowledged the ever-presence and power of God. Elisha, the man of God, discerned His power so clearly that when the steadfast Shunammite came to him for help, he restored her son to her alive. This natural and beautiful demonstration illustrated the power of Truth, as revealed and applied in Christian Science, wherein the understanding of God and of man's eternal perfection, as the image and likeness of his perfect Father, proves that man dwells forever in Spirit, where the testimony of the material senses is unknown, and therefore inoperative.

Through his marvelous works Jesus, the loving demonstrator of eternal, ever-present good, expressed confident assurance of the supremacy of health over disease, life over death, harmony over discord, and of love over hate, resentment, misunderstanding, and fear. By these works he proved every claim or suggestion of evil to be without the support of Principle, or divine intelligence, and to be subject to destruction here and now through an understanding of God's allness. Mary Baker Eddy, whose humility and clear spiritual vision enabled her to discern the truth of ever-present, demonstrable perfection, writes of our Master (Science and Health, pp. 476, 477): "Jesus beheld in Science the perfect man, who appeared to him where sinning mortal man appears to mortals. In this perfet man the Saviour saw God's own likeness, and this correct view of man healed the sick. Thus Jesus taught that the kingdom of God is intact, universal, and that man is pure and holy."
