You have authority: use it!

What happens if someone with authority refuses to exercise it or doesn't know how? Such command may soon be lost or cease to have any meaning.

Christian Science teaches that we, in our real being, are God's spiritual expression, His likeness, subject only to God, good. And He has given us power to govern ourselves according to divine law. "Exercise this God-given authority," writes Mrs. Eddy. "Take possession of your body, and govern its feeling and action." Science and Health, p. 393 . But what happens if we postpone using this ability or if we have never learned how? We may become subject to the whims and caprices of a physical body over which we seem to have lost all control. We may even be mesmerized by its illegitimate demands.
