Expectancy of Good

Christian Science reveals the fact that a joyous expectancy of good is natural to men and is a presage of healing. Mortals, however, are ever ready to contemplate and expect evil. This is because the basis of their thinking is wholly material. Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, writes on page 551 of its textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," "Darkness and doubt encompass thought, so long as it bases creation on materiality."

A study of Christ Jesus' works and life indicates that he always reasoned practically from spiritual cause to spiritual effect, consistently refuting every discord of material sense and proving man's existence to be perfect and spiritual. His every healing was a contradiction of some manifestation of the evil belief that man lives in and is governed by matter, and a further demonstration of the truth that God is eternal Life and man the divinely governed expression of Spirit. His words were vigorous and health-restoring, because he was convinced that life which reflects God is forever spiritual and perfect. He was ever aware of the spiritual harmony of being, of the power and supremacy of good.
