John 8:31-32 and a Flock of Ibis Rise up at Sunrise, Moss Park, Florida.
“So Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, ‘If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.'” John 8:31-32
Only His Truth Sets Us Free
The truth sets us free, but how does one know the truth? According to the Bible we don’t learn the truth from studying worldly books or philosophy. When we follow after the light of Christ and His word Jesus says, He makes us His disciples. Only after we become His disciples do we come to know the truth. The truth is in Him. Through Him we are set free from sin and the chains of this world.
By encouraged by all of John 8.
