The truth will set you free
Truth is not something we just know; it is something we live. Jesus reminds us that we must not only know His teaching, but we must also obey it. However, obedience is one of the proofs of our discipleship and a doorway to freedom and truth.
"If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."
— John 8:31-32
Dear Lord please forgive me for taking obedience to your will so lightly. Sometimes your way seems so hard. However, deep in my heart I do believe that your will is a blessing and not a hindrance. Use me to help others find joy in obeying you, too. In Jesus' name, Amen.
