Daily D – John 8:31-32

by | Oct 7, 2021 | Daily D | 0 comments

Then Jesus said to the Jews who had believed in him, “If you continue in my word, you really are my disciples. You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
JOHN 8:31-32 (CSB)

—————————————————————————

Truth liberates. False belief enslaves.

Search through John’s Gospel and notice this idea of truth. Truth is more than an intellectual pursuit. Truth is more than a concept to debate. There is no such thing as My Truth or Your Truth. There is only The Truth. That truth is embodied in Jesus.

Jesus says in 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

Jesus is The Truth.

If this sounds exclusive, it is. It is also inclusive. Every person is invited to know and experience Jesus, not only for a moment of enlightenment but for a life of growing, loving relationship.

Jesus said to those who discovered that he is The Truth, “If you continue in my word, you are really my disciples. You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

Truth and freedom are strongly connected. We cannot live truly free until we see Jesus for who he is. We cannot live truly free until we accept Jesus for who he is. We cannot live truly free until we lean into a lifestyle of continually knowing and experiencing Jesus.

Today can be your liberation day when you meet the truth in the person of Jesus. Seek truth. Know Jesus. Live free.

—————————————————————————

I will live in the freedom of knowing Jesus.

—————————————————————————

Our Father, thank you for truth. Thank you for freedom. Thank you that we can know you and experience you and help others do the same. May your truth pervade our lives. May your truth overflow into the lives of others. Amen.

Daily D – Job 21:2-3

Job 21:2, 3
“Pay close attention to my words;
let this be the consolation you offer.
Bear with me while I speak;
then after I have spoken, you may continue mocking.”

Daily D – Job 13:1-5

Job 13:1-5 “Look, my eyes have seen all this; my ears have heard and understood it. Everything you know, I also know; I am not inferior to you. Yet I prefer to speak to the Almighty and argue my case before God. You use lies like plaster; you are all worthless healers. If only you would shut up and let that be your wisdom!”

Daily D – Job 11:13-18

Job 11:13-18 **

“As for you, if you redirect your heart
and spread out your hands to him in prayer —
if there is iniquity in your hand, remove it,
and don’t allow injustice to dwell in your tents —
then you will hold your head high, free from fault.
You will be firmly established and unafraid.
For you will forget your suffering,
recalling it only as water that has flowed by.
Your life will be brighter than noonday;
its darkness will be like the morning.
You will be confident, because there is hope.
You will look carefully about and lie down in safety.”

Daily D – Job 4:8

Job 4:8 “In my experience, those who plow injustice and those who sow trouble reap the same.”

Daily D – Job 2:13

Job 2:13 Then they sat on the ground with him seven days and nights, but no one spoke a word to him because they saw that his suffering was very intense.
