Being truly free in Jesus

November 24th, 2012

Our Bible reading today was from John 8. Here is a snippet…

John 8:31-32 says, “Jesus said to the people who believed in him, “You are truly my disciples if you remain faithful to my teachings. And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

I really liked what the Life Application Study Bible said about verse 32, so I thought I would share it…

“8:32 Jesus himself is the truth that sets us free (8:36). He is the source of truth, the perfect standard of what is right.

He frees us from continued slavery to sin, from self-deception, and from deception by Satan.

He shows us clearly the way to eternal life with God. Thus, Jesus does not give us freedom to do what we want, but freedom to follow God.

As we seek to serve God, Jesus’ perfect truth frees us to be all that God meant us to be.”

I hope that encourages you today.

God Bless,
