"Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
Today's Devotion - And That's THE Truth
The truth will set you free. Probably one of the most misquoted scriptures in the whole Bible. Because many times it's spoken totally out of context. We hear it in movies and television shows, in conversations about a variety of things.
Jesus Himself spoke these words and in the context that He was speaking these words He meant it specifically about THE truth. Remember that Jesus said, "I am the way, the TRUTH and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me" in John 14:6?!
There is ONE truth. With that in mind, hear what Jesus spoke in John 8:32 from The Message: "Then Jesus turned to the Jews who had claimed to believe in him. “If you stick with this, living out what I tell you, you are my disciples for sure. Then you will experience for yourselves the truth, and the truth will free you.”"
The only way to live out what Jesus tells us is by reading and knowing His Word. His Word IS Truth. And we have this promise from Him that when we live out what He tells us...we are His...and His truth will set us free! What a beautiful promise to count on!
