Week 6: Day 7
The Freedom of Truth
Scripture to meditate on:
To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
They answered him, “We are Abraham’s descendants and have never been slaves of anyone. How can you say that we shall be set free?”
Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. I know that you are Abraham’s descendants. Yet you are looking for a way to kill me, because you have no room for my word. I am telling you what I have seen in the Father’s presence, and you are doing what you have heard from your father.” – John 8:31-38
John talks about the liberating power of truth. Today, contemplate the freedom that comes from embracing and living in truth.
Questions to ponder:
- How has the truth, as revealed in Christ, set you free in your spiritual journey?
- Can you think of situations where living in truth led to a sense of liberation and peace?
- In what ways can you continue to seek and live in the truth that brings freedom in your life?
