True Words..

October 27, 2017

 

If you abide in my word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free" John 8:32

 

According to statistics released by Barna, 61% of adults in the UK believe that Jesus was a real person who actually lived. Although this proves nothing, it is interesting how many accept this as fact. It would be helpful to know how many in this survey had read what Jesus had to say. 

 

 

 

Roughly 40 times in John’s gospel alone Jesus makes the statement “I tell you the truth”.

 

It's common to believe that there is no absolute truth, especially when talking about ‘religion'. To avoid offense we say “what’s true for you is true for you, and what’s true for me is true for me”. Perhaps the next time someone says “…there is no absolute truth”, we should ask: “are you absolutely sure about that?”. 

 

Jesus was sure that what He had to say was true. He promised freedom to those who believed in what He was saying. But freedom from what? Jesus was speaking about a spiritual freedom, freedom from Sin (John 8:33-36). Quite an unpopular word, as people often feel ‘judged’ if you even mention Sin. Although some believe that they never sinned or have an issue with it (Romans 3:23, Romans 7:19).

 

Jesus wanted to set people free from an endless list of slavery to Sin (John 8:33-36):

 

- from feeling like they had to lie (even white lies)

- from stealing 

- from adultery

- from gossiping

- from pride

- from slander

- from addictions

 

The list goes on and on. The promise of Christ is very simple, if we believe that what He said is absolutely true (so much so that it shapes how we live our lives) we can be free not to do those things anymore and if we do then we have freedom to repent (1 John 2:1-2). 

 

“If you abide in my word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free" John 8:32
