Know the Truth
So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”John 8:31-32
Christians live by God’s truth while most of the world lives by Satan’s lies. The choice for everyone is to believe God’s truth or believe Satan’s lies. The truth comes from the Word of God, and the more we know the Word the less power Satan has to deceive us.
For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery. (Galatians 5:1) Only Christ can set us free from the sinful world, because we know Christ will lead us through this life to our Heavenly home. It doesn’t matter what is going on in our life, we will remain free in Christ. Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell. (Matthew 10:28) We never die because life in in our soul and in our flesh. When we take our last breath, we will be alive a spiritual person, and when Christ returns, we will have a new perfect body that lasts forever.
The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. (Romans 8:6) Those who are governed by their flesh will forfeit their soul, but those who live by the Spirit will have eternal life. We can be guided by God’s Truth or by Satan’s lies, there is no other choice. People who don’t the Word of God, will by default live by Satan’s lies.
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, (Romans 3:23) All have sinned and no one as eternal life except through Christ. Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me”. (John 14:6) Only through Christ do we have Heavenly life, because Christ died for our sins; and when we give our life to Christ, we have the Holy Spirit and forgiveness from Christ, who presents us to the Father as perfect. Christ forgives us when we have Godly sorrow, and we fight sin through the power of God.
As Christians we know the truth from the Word and we know scriptures that kill Satan’s lies. We must prepare to bring God’s truth to people because they are deeply indoctrinated in Satan’s lies.
Today live by the truth and bring the truth to anyone you encounter living in Satan’s lies. Make a list of scriptures to overcome Satan’s lies.
Prayer: Father guide me to live in your Truth, and to bring truth to those living in Satan’s lies. In Jesus name, Amen
