Makes You Free!

If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free– John 8:31-32. As disciples of Jesus, we will come to know the truth, for the truth itself shall make us free to be his disciples. I once saw a poster illustrating an arm garbed with a robe and an outstretched hand that we were to assume was Jesus setting a bird free, and the caption below said, The truth will set you free- John 8:32. This Scripture was not even quoted accurately. The kind of freedom that Jesus was teaching was freedom to choose to walk with him; believers are never set free in the sense of being just simply freed to aimlessly wander around. Rather we were made free from the world, to be able to follow and become true Disciples of Christ, through the words of God that Jesus Christ spoke.” ~LMJ~
