John 8:36 ESV – So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

Truth Brings Freedom

The mark of a true Christian is found in his personal relationship to the Person of Jesus Christ. Christianity is Christ. Christ is Christianity. I speak reverently when I say that Jesus is more than His ideas. All that He said was true, but without Him even the truth would have been powerless. Men know the power of truth, and truth is that which sets men free. Jesus said, “I am the truth.”

Daily Prayer

Thank You, Jesus, for the shackles that have been broken in my life!

Why Read the Bible XXIX


PSALM 119:44-45 (NIV) – I will always obey your law, for ever and ever. I will walk about in freedom, for I have sought out your precepts.

Freedom of Obeying the Word

Why did David devote himself to God’s commands?

Why would obeying God’s word lead to freedom?

“Truth” by Billy Graham


Truth

Ours is an age of philosophical uncertainty, and we no longer know what we believe. We stand uncommitted. Everywhere I go, I ask students, “What is controlling you?” When I was a student, I had to face Christ. Who was He? He had made the astounding claim, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No man cometh unto the Father but by me.” I wrestled with the inescapable fact that either Jesus Christ was who He claimed to be, or He was the biggest liar, fraud, and charlatan in history. Which was it? Buddha said toward the end of his life, “I am still searching for the truth.” But here was Jesus who appeared and said, “I am the embodiment of all truth. All truth is centered in me.”

JOHN 8:32 NKJV

And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

Daily Prayer

Thank You, Jesus, for my freedom—because You are the Truth!
