First find God

The study of Christian Science teaches us to first find God if we would find healing. Our health and strength are byproducts of a vivid realization that God is, and that He is present with us in His fullness at this very moment.

When on Mars' Hill in Athens, reasoning with the Greek philosophers, Paul stated a truth that underlies all effective healing work. He spoke of "all nations of men" seeking the Lord, "if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: for in him we live, and move, and have our being." Acts 17:26-28; Success in healing demands that we learn to find God through an intuitive "feeling"—an inner vision of His all-presence and changeless love—and then strive steadfastly, unwaveringly, gratefully, to hold thought to this great fact, denying any mental suggestions that would oppose or contradict it.
