God’s truth isn’t complicated. It’s simple yet elusive. Many words define truth, but the only one acceptable in God’s dictionary is—-believing in Christ. This five-letter one-syllable word brings the biggest freedom known to humanity; Christian eternity.
Honesty is good, but it doesn’t go far enough to secure us a place in God’s kingdom. Unbelievers have the ability, to be honest. God designed everyone with the sense of honesty.
God’s truth requires making painful sacrifices unpopular to the world. Those personal sacrifices don’t compare with the one God made—the death of His Son. And the truth of Christ’s resurrection frees us from sin.
When we admit to our innermost self the truth of Christ, then God steps in and showers us with His Spirit. This spiritual cleansing purifies our heart and frees our souls from Adam’s original sin. You can’t find a greater freedom than being freed from spiritual death!
One thing I’ve learned from Christ’s truth is I’m not perfect. I sin. But when I repent; God keeps me free from its devastating consequences. Repentance is a great liberator because Christ knows it isn’t comfortable living on the road of redemption.
Christ tells us this:
And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. (John 8:32)
How has Christ’s truth freed you?
