So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed in him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. (John 8:31, 32 ESV)
Moving forward, 2018 National Day of Prayer now in history books. America abounds in deception, Truth will prevail. Jews and Gentiles believe in Jesus. My heart is troubled for all who stopped abiding/remaining in God’s Word. As satan gains more ground deceiving, more people follow false teachers, moving away from sound teaching. Truth once revered, now indifferent and resisted. Without Truth, we perish for lacking knowledge.
Proverbs 28:26 is clear...Whoever trust in his own mind is a fool, but he who walks in wisdom will be delivered. Anyone who lacks wisdom, just has to ask and God will give you wisdom. It’s really amazing how giving God is:
- Gives His one and only Son, to die on the cross, as a sacrificial lamb- The Word
- Gives The Holy Spirit- Spirit of Truth, Comforter, Teacher, Counselor
- Gives Wisdom to all who ask
- Gives Adam and Eve life…The Garden of Eden…until they disobeyed/stopped abiding…
- Gives Life available to all, eternal Life
- Gives all good things, even when disciplined- for our good
Talking the talk…will not be taken serious. God will not be deceived, He is all-knowing. In Romans 16, false teachers will be known by their smooth talk and flattery, serving their own appetite. True disciples of Jesus Christ abide in God’s Word. Truth is God’s Word, all God-breathed for our benefit. The above list is just a few, God is Healer, Protector, Deliverer, and the list can go on for a very long time. He loves to reward obedient believers. It’s Biblical Truth, power within, activated in us…nothing satan can do to stop God’s Work in us. Any delay has to do with us…not God. The enemy loves to steal, kill, and destroy. Let’s move forward choosing Truth. Know Biblical Truth, Truth will set us free. Biblical Truth + relationship with Jesus = Freedom! What’s been stopping you? Forget all the excuses…start today!
