There is a light "which lighteth every man that cometh into the world." This "light" is the divine Soul of each one, and these words declare that every soul is born with this nature--hence, that our natural state is divine.

The newborn babe is God's child. "Call no man on earth your Father; one is your Father, even God." "That which is born of spirit is spirit."

The Truth is here and will free us. As soon as we know that our source is in God--that the divine Spirit gives us "life, breath, and all things." We know that our inheritance is perfection and our birthright is only good. "We know that we are of God;" that we must "call no man on earth" our life-giver or source. Then can we see we are free from the old law that declared us to be conceived in sin and born in iniquity. Jesus showed us a more excellent truth, by which we see ourselves in a new light and know ourselves "heirs of God, joint-heirs with Christ."

Religion should not only help us in times of trouble, but should keep us out of trouble. This kind of religion sent Jesus about doing good, saving men's thoughts from wrong beliefs and their consequences. He said that all who followed his Truth and Way should do the same works that he did.

You may ask, Can we heal the sick and do the same wonderful things that Jesus did on earth? Yes, for he said so and we are proving it, but we must follow his Way. When he said, "I am the way," he showed there is but one Way. And what was that? He said, "Of myself I can do nothing. The Father that dwelleth in me he doeth the works." This is the Way. Not by any power of his own did Jesus heal the sick, but by knowing himself one with God; by trusting fully that power of Good within him, he was able to do mighty works. The same Power that dwelt in Jesus dwells in us.

This is the only Way for anyone to do such works. Jesus promised that all who believed and trusted this Way should find its light which would show them, as it did him, the Truth of life.

Everywhere, now, followers of Christ are proving the Power that is within them as it was within Jesus. By letting the Power use us we become more and more able to do its will. It is understanding this Power that heals all that seems sick, and casts out all that seems evil, for Truth is "with you always."
