The Truth Shall Set You Free

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

Happy Veterans Day

Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. John 15:13
Veterans need to be honored for their wiliness to pay the ultimate sacrifice for all of us
For where would we all be without Veterans paying the price? Most likely we would be unable to exercise our freedoms of today such as worshipping God
Talking about sacrifice I can’t help but talk about our Messiah Jesus sacrificing himself to pay the price for our sins.
Are we worthy of either sacrifice? Probably not, that’s why I’m thankful and feel blessed for all the sacrifices made for me and my family.
I’m proud of my father, a Vietnam Veteran; spend 3 years over there right out of high school. He was just a young boy when they sent him over, he didn’t know what to expect and probably seen evil we couldn’t even imagine.
But he was courageous and brave and was willing to sacrifice because he loves this country, he loves his family, and he loves God
The true heroes of this country are Veterans just like my Dad, not some pop star, not some overpaid athlete. Brave men and women who are willing to risk it all to protect us all.
Nobody likes war and we all pray for Peace but as it says in Ecclesiastes 3:8 “There is a time for war and a time for Peace” but when the enemy attacks our people, these are the soldiers who risk it all.
So today are you thankful for your Church? Thanks a Veteran. Are you thankful for your house? Thank a Veteran. Are you thankful for your education? Thank a Veteran.
Without Veteran none of these freedoms would be possible. Therefor I Thank you all the Veterans especially my Dad! Happy Veterans Day!
God Bless you all and I pray one day we will all live free in God’s Kingdom Amen
