Real Truth…

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

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.

This verse tells 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 it. Jesus says we are able to know His truth and that is what sets us free. THE TRUTH THAT YOU KNOW SETS YOU FREE!

So, this week, join us as we continue in God’s Word together to KNOW TRUTH. Each day, set time aside to gain understanding from God’s Word. Let it disciple you into a new arena of freedom. Liberate yourself from the bondage of lies and deception and step up into a new-found freedom. The more you know the more you can grow so FLOURISH DAILY in His Word!

The Blessing Edge…

Psalm 112:1-2 “Hallelujah! BLESSED man, BLESSED woman, who fear God, Who cherish and relish his commandments, their children robust on the earth, And the homes of the upright—how BLESSED! ” [MSG]

Say yes to blessing! Our verse today says that you are BLESSED!

Firstly, you are BLESSED, as you fear God. The word fear means to reverently worship. So as you reverently worship God you become BLESSED. What an opportunity!

Secondly, you are BLESSED as you take pleasure in, relish and delight in God’s way of doing things. You and everyone you know can become a BLESSED man or a BLESSED Woman… right here on earth as you apply God’s Word to your life.

Last of all… when you are BLESSED, your children will be healthy, vigorous, hearty and strong on earth. This magnificent promise is for your family. God promises that the home of the upright is abundantly BLESSED beyond what you could ask for or even think. WOW!

This week make sure you reverentially worship God, do things His way and cherish his commandments, and it will release you to be BLESSED.
