And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. John 8:32
We have all heard the saying “The truth shall set you free” at some point in our life, but did you know it was Jesus who said that? What is the truth and how will it make you free?
(John 14:6) “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
Jesus is the truth. And he is the only one who can set you free. By his sacrifice on the cross he has freed us all from the bondage of death and sin. Without Jesus there is no way heaven or eternal life. Very importantly Jesus tells us nobody will see God without accepting Jesus are your Lord and Savior
(John 1:14) “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”
How can Jesus be the truth? Simply Jesus is “The Word”, God made in the flesh. Every word Jesus told us is the truth and will set you free, but of course we need to have faith. Jesus have given you truth and life but nobody can give your faith.
(Romans 8:2)”For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.”
Jesus Christ has set us from by the law of the Spirit. Man could not escape the punishments of sin caused by Adam . This is why once you know the truth of Jesus Christ you shall be set free. Good deeds and character cannot get you to the father, only thru the blood of Jesus Christ can set you free.
(Galatians 5:1) “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery”
What is the yoke of slavery? Its sin, as Jesus said we are all slaves to sin. But don’t be burdened for Jesus has set us free. Follow Jesus, break the yoke, listen to the truth and it too shall set you free. In Jesus name Amen
