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.
