The Truth Does Not Set You Free

By July 16, 2013 One Comment

Jesus said, “You will know the truth and the truth will set you free.”

At face value, his words are misleading at best. I know people who know the truth but are anything but free. They have Bibles on their smart phones. They not only read the Bible – they have memorized whole sections of it.

“Truth that is not experienced is no better than error, and may be fully as dangerous. The scribes who sat in Moses’ seat were not the victims of error; they were the victims of their failure to experience the truth they taught.” A.W.Tozer

The truth does not set you free. Truth obeyed sets you free.
Faith is simply bringing God’s Word to bear on your problem.
Are you stuck? Is there someone you need to forgive to move forward in your life?
The truth is we are forgiven as we forgive. “forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.” Luke 11:4
Do you want to achieve? Is there something you need to give up so you can go up?
The truth is “offer your body as a living sacrifice…to God.” Romans 12:1
Are you trying to live a new life with old habits? Is there somewhere you need to avoid in order to defeat temptation?
The truth is temptation should be fled from. 1 Timothy 2:22
