THE TRUTH MAKES YOU FREE
And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
Consider the following ways people treat the truth of God.
DEPART FROM TRUTH
Sadly there are those who have found the truth – but for many reasons have departed from it.
DISTORT THE TRUTH
Then there are those who distort the truth to say what they want it to say. You can use the Bible to support any way of life – but when used in balance as the whole counsel of God – it becomes easy to see the distortions
DENY THE TRUTH
Then there are those who simply deny the truth of God’s word.
Funny how they deny God and His truth – yet fight so vehemently against those who declare His truth.
DESPISE THE TRUTH
The worst offenders are those who claim to live for God – yet live in open disobedience to His commands. These people are despisers of the truth – quoting it, yet not living it.
THEN THERE ARE THE GOOD GUYS
DELIGHT IN TRUTH
Those who delight in the law of the Lord – make it their joy to obey His commandments.
DECLARE THE TRUTH
Truth that is not declared – is not truth – just a philosophical belief system.
God’s truth comes – and when it does – it brings Light, Life and Love.
If you can’t speak it – you don’t believe it.
DEFEND THE TRUTH
We are to know the truth so we can give a reason for the hope within us.
People ignorant of the truth can be led around by any opinion and wind of doctrine.
DEMONSTRATE THE TRUTH
Ultimately truth makes us free when we live in such a way that others can see the word working mightily in our lives.
Miracles are proof of the word living in you.
CALVARY BREAKS THE POWER OF SIN OVER US
PENTECOST GIVES US POWER TO RULE OVER SIN
THE TRUTH RENEWS US TO LIVE FREE FROM SIN
