“You Will Know The Truth And The Truth Will Set You Free”

Every day we get a barrage of information from television, radio and internet. Of all the info we receive what is truth and what is not? The term “fake news” is even used to refer to news that some feel isn’t true.
Jesus said to those who were following Him, “And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (John 8:32).
When Jesus stood before Pilate, he asked, “What is truth?”
“Truth” is what man has searched for since the beginning of time and various religions teach that following the tenets of that religion leads to truth. But Jesus said, “you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.”
Truth, is that God loves us. Regardless of our past, regardless of our mistakes… God loves us.
Truth is, that God sent His Son to die for us. If you ever think no one loves you, be reminded that Jesus died for you. That is truth.
Truth is, that God accepts us as we are. Last night, I attended a High School graduation. A handful of kids were recognized for having 4.0 gpa’s That’s a GREAT accomplishment. But most of the kids were average students. God loves them, just as much as the one’s with the 4.0. God accepts as we are.
Truth is, that we don’t have to “impress” God… God loves us… we can’t earn His love… it’s all by grace.
So, Jesus said, “You will know the truth…”
God loves you.
Jesus died for you.
God accepts us like we are.
We can’t earn God’s grace.
“And the truth will set us free.”
Rest in the Lord’s love today.
