True Freedom…

“Then you will know the truth, and the TRUTH THAT YOU KNOW will set you free”
John 8:32

Often we see images in the press of the solid bars on prison cells or the sharp razor wire that incarcerates and separates people from freedom. We hear stories of brazen escapes by inmates and their subsequent recapture and return to prison. Freedom is something that we cherish and it is also something that God cherishes for his people.

Today’s verse reminds us that we each need to be set free. Many believers are unknowingly held captive every day of their lives. Their captivity is a cage formed by lies and deception caused by a lack of knowledge. The solution is simple: obtain the key that opens the prison cell. The key is simply to KNOW THE TRUTH from God’s Word.

It is important to understand that truth alone never brings freedom. It is the TRUTH THAT YOU KNOW that produces freedom. Jesus says we are able to know His truth and that is what sets us free. THE TRUTH THAT YOU KNOW SETS YOU FREE!

This week let’s continue in God’s Word to KNOW TRUTH. Each day let’s set time aside to gain understanding from God’s Word. Let’s allow His Word to disciple us into a new arena of freedom. His Word will liberate us from the bondage of lies & deception as we step up into our newfound freedom. The more we know, the more we can grow, so let’s FLOURISH DAILY in His Word!
