Joh 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
Here is a promise that truth is available to us. The greatest hindrance to truth is what we already perceive as truth. We have been taught in the past to believe certain things and these things have become truth to us.
Because of this we then judge the bible according to what we have been taught and what we feel or feel we have experienced. The Bible was given to judge us and how often is it that we have ignored that judgment and proceeded with our preconceived notions and wrest the Bible to our way of thinking.
Now many have claimed to be religious or spiritual. The interesting truth is that we are religiously and spiritually inefficient and often Satan has used his most effective tool called deception. He will deceive unbelievers into ignoring or dismissing the reality of God and their personal need for a personal relationship with the “King of Kings” and “Lord of Lords”.
Satan confuses the Christians by distorting the basic truths of Christianity. He does not mind a little Bible truth mixed with a lot of ignorance because then truth is absent. By this mixture of truth and error he leads Gods people to accept evil and sin and righteousness has been destroyed.
The truth shall make you free. Free from ignorance, and the bondage of sin. Free to have an unhindered relationship with our Saviour and Lord. Free to communicate with God about our needs and our excesses. Free to live a life of honor and glory.
May we live this day in truth.
