There are many voices out there that would have you believe that their way is the way to the truth. They purport to have the answers yet, in reality, they’re just as confused as everyone else seems to be.
There are many things that are true: the sun is always out there, electricity works, sound waves transmit, gravity works, plants grow, etc. But . . . which truth can you depend on every time? Which truth can heal your body, deliver you from depression, give you peace? Let’s see what Jesus has to say about truth.
Even though there are many truths, there is only one that is THE TRUTH. Jesus said that He is THE way, THE truth, and THE life. It’s not just any truth that we are talking about—it’s THE TRUTH – Jesus!
Many times people will quote part of the scripture saying that the truth will make you free. But, Jesus didn’t say it that way. He said, “If you continue in My Word . . . you shall know THE truth and THE truth will make you free.”
John 14:6 (KJV) 6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
John 8:31-32 (KJV) 31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
So, what is THE TRUTH that will make you free – free from sickness and disease, free from poverty, free from depression, addiction, and a life of anguish and torment? It’s the Word of God. Jesus is the Word of God and He said that His Word, if you continue in it, will make you free.
John 1:1,14 (KJV) 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
How can you believe for healing if you don’t know what God has already said in His Word about healing? How can you believe to get out of poverty if you don’t know God’s way of financial prosperity? How can you escape hell if you don’t know God’s way of salvation? The answer to each of these questions is that you can’t know God’s ways if you don’t know and continue in His Word.
Now, let me say that just knowing about the Word of God is not enough to make you free. You have to be a doer of the Word because only the doer of the Word is blessed in what he does.
James 1:22-25 (KJV) 22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:
24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.
25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
When you continue in the Word of God, you begin to know His ways and by knowing His ways, which is THE TRUTH, that TRUTH that you walk in and do, will make you free!
Be a doer of the Word of God and live a life of freedom worth living!
