To have knowledge of universal laws has much value according to the Apostle Paul in Romans 3:2, but he goes on in verse 9 to say, “What then? Are we better off? Certainly not, for we have already charged that Jews and Greeks alike are all under sin.” Knowledge is not power in and of itself. Knowledge may enlighten and encourage and motivate us towards seeking and applying truth, but it does not guarantee we will follow through. Power comes from somewhere else.

The Apostle John records the words of Jesus in his Gospel. “Then Jesus said to those Judeans who had believed him, ‘If you continue to follow my teaching, you are really my disciples {32} and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free’” (8:31-32).

The Expositor’s Greek Testament – Volume 1 says this about these verses, “By abiding in Christ’s word, making it the rule of their life and accepting Him as their Guide and Teacher, they would come to that knowledge of the truth which only experimental testing of it can bring; and the truth regarding their relation to Him and to God would turn all service and all life into liberty. Freedom, a condition of absolute liberty from all outward constraint, is only attained when man attains fellowship with God (who is absolutely free) in the truth: when that prompts man to action which prompts God.”

The Apostle Paul makes it very clear in Romans 3:19 (check it for yourself), everyone is accountable to God for how they live their lives. Knowledge of truth is not enough. The power to live our purpose and fulfill our destiny, leaving a lasting positive legacy rests in our willingness to say YES to relationship to God through Jesus Christ.

Let’s be clear on something. Jesus does not leave you the option of only considering Him as a good, moral, teacher who offers some high energetic thinking and ideas. He declared, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6). In essence, according to The Expositor’s Greek Testament – Volume 1 “It is not ‘through believing certain propositions regarding Jesus” nor ‘through some special kind of faith,’ but ‘through Jesus’” we actually make our way to the Heavenly Father.

It is the sacrificial death of Jesus on the cross of Calvary which provides the opportunity for everyone, regardless of their energetic awareness, or their knowledge of universal laws, or their spiritual light and insights, to be able to be reconciled to God and have access to the power which

brings transformational freedom and expression to life.

This is a core, foundational principle in The SEE Method of Living. Can you still benefit from this training even if you don’t believe this? YES, you can, but you will be leaving out a key component of the process. It is always your choice, your decision, your outcome, your reality that is involved.
