The Truth Will Set You Free!
“Jesus said, ‘If you are faithful to what I have said, you are truly My Disciples…
And you will know THE TRUTH and THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE!’” John 8:31-32
“Information” can often be a “Tale of Two Cities” thing, can’t it? That sort of “Information” can be objective or straightforward “Just the facts, ma’am” OR, it can be so blatantly subjective and manipulative that I find myself thinking, “Hey wait a minute – that can’t be right!”
So, where do you get your information about our current “crisis”? Solely from cable news outlets? Pundits who tell you they have all the answers? Way too often, these sources are designed to cause panic and fear – to control us, keep us anxious, and manipulate our thoughts.
Truth is, we have nothing to fear and no reason to panic! Whatever the life issue, when we watch “reports” other than wholly reliable sources, let’s, as Proverbs says, scrutinize with a cautious, prudent “both eyes on Jesus Christ.” Truth is neither relative, manipulative, nor subjective. Truth indeed IS the Word of God Himself – both Living and Written. And that Written Word of God is straight from the Lord God’s lips to your heart:
“All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching the faith and correcting error, for re-setting the direction of a person’s life and training… The Scriptures are the comprehensive equipment of God’s People and fit us fully for all branches of our work.” II Timothy 3:16 – PH
God’s Word is designed to grow our intimate relationship with the Living Word, Jesus Christ…who is the Flesh and Blood of Grace and Truth. Filtered through Christ, we can know that we know THE TRUTH:
We have Christ in us, we are outrageously loved, our eternity and freedom secure in His salvation! Those of us IN CHRIST have been given the “Mind of Christ” (I Corinthians 2:16). Search His Mind…ask His Truth for whatever you hear and face…and do not panic nor be afraid. Remember…
“There is no fear in Love. But perfect Love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in Love. We know also that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know Him who is true. And we are IN HIM who is true by being IN His Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life.” I John 4:18, 5:20.
God Bless You!
