“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 8:31-32
Deceit and lies repulse us and we endeavour to steer clear of liars. Jesus said He is the way, the truth and the light. The Bible says let God be true and every man a liar. They accused Jesus of being a deceiver and a liar, but Jesus emphatically says that He is truth and all that He said was true, but He was continually declared to be a liar by the religious leaders of His day.
To know the Lord Jesus Christ is to know truth and truth sets you free. It is necessary to abide in Him, and in so doing you abide in His word because He and His word are one.
The devil, by his nature is a liar and he is the author of all lies. One of his names is the “Deceiver” and of course, if one believes a lie they will be misled.
Many people chase after other religious experiences, but need to beware that they could be led astray and out of the way of truth.
Following Jesus means accepting everything He said as the ultimate truth. It’s not open for debate.
It is true that He gives those who believe on Him the authority to be the sons of God. It is true that He said He came from God, and is the Son of God. It is true that He came to earth to destroy the works of the devil. It is true when He claimed that after death He would rise again, and ascend back to the Father, and that He will come again.
He stated the truth when He said no one can come to God except through and by Him. He said, “I am the door. If anyone enters by Me he will be saved.”
“Those who believe in me” He said, “shall never die”. “I am the resurrection and the light”.
Never doubt Him for He is the very embodiment of truth.
Dear Lord Jesus, thank You for Your love, goodness and grace. Today I trust Your word completely and I know that it will never fail me.
