The Psalmist sang, "The Lord hath made known his salvation: . . . all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God."

Nowhere is there to be found a more satisfying definition of "salvation" than that given by Mary Baker Eddy in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 593): "Life, Truth, and Love understood and demonstrated as supreme over all; sin, sickness, and death destroyed."

One may ask, "When is this salvation to be realized?" Paul, in his second letter to the Corinthians, declares, "Now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation." "Now" means today, every day. Because God, omnipotent Mind, omnipresent Love, is supreme. All-in-all, He is ready now to bless. So the nowness of all that is good, harmonious, and real is established and there is no reality in sin, disease, death, lack, or limitation of any kind.
