KNOWING THE TRUTH THAT MAKES ONE FREE!
And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free (John 8:32).
The truth is the fact and reality of God’s Word with evidence and manifestations of the Holy Spirit in life. The truth can never vary because Jesus Christ is the same forevermore in life (Hebrews 13:8). Whatever God says in His Word remains indisputable no matter the challenges of life. That is why the truth has the potency to make one free in life. The Bible says in the opening text that you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God wants him to know the truth that can set one free in life. Hence, it is only the truth that indeed has the potency and power to set one free in life. A life that is devoid of the truth of God’s Word is absolutely a life striving in bondage forever.
Moreover, the truth of God’s Word is personified in Jesus Christ who is the only way to eternal life. That is why the Bible says in John 14:6, “Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” Therefore, the truth that can set one free totally in life is actually found in the person of Jesus Christ only in life. Without Jesus Christ who is the truth, no one can have a relationship with God in life. It is only Jesus Christ who is the truth and the Son of God that has the power to make one free in life (John 8:36). There is no truth where Jesus Christ is never found in life. A life that is lived in truth of God’s Word is absolutely a life that is freed from eternal bondage of sin and sorrow in life forever.
Knowing the truth that makes one free is by grace; hence, salvation is by grace and no one dares boast of it in life (Ephesians 2:8-9). That is the reason why the Bible says in Colossians 1:6, “Which has come to you, as it has also in all the world, and is bringing forth fruit, as it is also among you since the day you heard and knew the grace of God in truth.” In fact, the grace of God in Jesus Christ unveils the mystery of divine truth for a Christian in life. Take note of the fact that the truth of God you knew is by grace in life. A life that is devoid of the truth of God which is found in Jesus Christ is totally dead and buried in life. Therefore, the life that is lived in the truth of God’s Word is absolutely a life that is awesomely blessed by God in life forever.
Daily Tip: Every Christian should absolutely take note of the fact that the truth of God he knew is by grace and it is not by his intellect, knowledge or philosophy of life forever. Shalom!
Golden Text: Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from foods which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth (I Timothy 4:3).
