The leaven is at work

When a baker puts yeast in a batch of bread dough, he has full faith that the whole batch will be leavened—once the yeast is properly mixed with the other ingredients, it spreads throughout the dough. It cannot be removed and its leavening effect comes into play. 

When Christ Jesus preached the kingdom of God, he proclaimed it to be “at hand,” “within you,” and “like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened” (see Luke 21:31; 17:21; and 13:20, 21). Likewise, Mary Baker Eddy spoke of the divine Science of Christ, Truth, as the leaven destined to change “the whole of mortal thought, as yeast changes the chemical properties of meal” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 118).
