Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free – John 8: 32
People talk about truth been vague or been hard to find nowadays.But is truth really vague? Others also talk about searching for the truth. But do they really know what truth is? How truth looks like? Perhaps they would not recognize the truth even if they come across it.
It is very illogical and difficult to look for something you don’t have the idea of or something you can’t explain or tell what it is. The security personnel cannot go searching for a missing person without description. The doctor cannot prescribe medication for an illness he doesn’t know. Perhaps you are looking for the truth in the world; You are the person missing and not the truth. You are looking for it at the wrong place. Truth is in Jesus Christ. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life.No-one comes to the father except through me”, – John 14:6. So clearly, until you find Jesus, you have not found the truth; and you do not know the truth.
To find Jesus(The Truth) and to know Him and to live the truth is what is going to set you free. There is a big difference between knowing the truth and loving the truth. A lot of people know the truth but they find it hard to live it. Knowing the truth is not enough. Living the truth (Jesus) is what sets you free, He sets you free from curses, bondages, sin and most importantly eternal condemnation. When you find Jesus and accept Him as the only way, truth and life, you are set free from sin’s grip; you receive grace to live freely and not be a slave to sin anymore.
The search for truth is over when you find Jesus Christ. You start to live the truth by accepting Jesus as your personal Lord and Saviour. And believing that He was sent to die for you to save you from perishing: You live the truth through and consistent study of the word of God. His word is truth as He says in John 17:17, ” Sanctify them by the truth: your word is truth”. And you also live the truth by the application of the word of truth in your life. “But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God”, John 3:21.
God, the father also seeks that we worship on truth as Jesus, the son states in John 4:24, ” God is a spirit;and those that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.”
It is necessary we find the truth in Jesus Christ, because it is requisite in life. Without Jesus, there is no salvation and liberation. God wants us freed and Jesus, the truth is there to free us when we accept him. And if the son(Jesus) sets you free, you are free indeed.
