The key to improving the body—reformation

More people than ever are trying to reshape their bodies. But isn't the most basic need to reform thought?

Sometimes, in our daily lives, we may devote quite a lot of time and thought to feeling disturbed about sickness or sin. But somehow we don't always seem to move quickly toward the reformation of thought that destroys sickness or sin. True repentance, however, actually brings us out of the error of thought and sets us on the way to reformation and physical healing.

Christ Jesus' teachings and ministry exhibit the power of God to restore lives and bring healing and salvation, and every healing in Christian Science is based on reformation of thought and life. In any given situation our concept of man needs to be spiritualized, reformed—literally re-formed. We need to see more clearly that man, as revealed in the Bible, is the image and likeness of God and that therefore we have the God-given ability to prove this. The inevitable healing result is natural—it's the outcome of spiritual growth.
