"And the man believed"

A NOBLEMAN besought Christ Jesus to come and heal his son, who was at the point of death. Jesus said to him (John 4:50), "Go thy way; thy son liveth." The Scriptural account continues, "And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went his way." As he returned home, his servants met him, saying, "Thy son liveth." The father asked when the son had begun to improve, and they told him, "Yesterday at the seventh hour." The father then knew "that it was at the same hour, in the which Jesus said unto him, Thy son liveth: and himself believed, and his whole house."

The beliefs we entertain have a definite effect upon our lives. If what we believe is true, our experience will be blessed. If what we believe is not true, it will affect our experience adversely. It has been proved many times in Christian Science that negative circumstances and conditions are less harmful to us than are the beliefs we entertain about them.
