“And you will know the Truth, and the Truth will set you free.”
Our main words in this above scripture are TRUTH and FREE.
Jesus says in John 14:6 that He is the Way the TRUTH and the Life.
John 8:32 says we will KNOW the TRUTH and the TRUTH will set is FREE.
So we will KNOW CHRIST and CHRIST will set us FREE.
When we come to repentance and give our lives over to Christ we are made righteous in Him. In this process we are cleansed of our sin and set free from the sinful ways of the world that bind us. This reminds me of a song:
“My chains are gone,
I’ve been set free.
My God and Savior,
Has ransomed me.”
Wow! To think that in getting to know Christ He sets us free from all the things that bind us. Things that keep us away from the presence of God where we can experience true freedom and love. His goodness, mercy, love, faithfulness and many more things follow us with His presence when we give our lives over to Him.
He truly is a good good Father.
