“You Will Know The Truth And It Will Set You FRee”

In the movie “A Few Good Men,” in one scene, Tom Cruise’ character says to Jack Nicholson’s character, “I want the TRUTH!”
Nicholson responds, “You can’t HANDLE the TRUTH!”
Well, “what is truth?”
That’s what Pilate asked Jesus in John 18:38. And, two-thousand years later, people are still asking that question; “What is truth?”
In John 8:32 Jesus said, “You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” In the preceding verse, the Bible says, “Jesus said to the people who believed in him…” So, Jesus was speaking to people who had placed their trust in Him. And because they had they were no longer in bondage to sin. Because they had believed in Jesus, they would know the truth and it would set them free.
So, what is truth?
Truth is that Jesus Christ left heaven and came to earth, taking on human flesh in order that He could go to the cross to die for our sins.
Truth is God’s Word. The Bible is “truth, without any mixture or error.”
Truth is believing in Jesus Christ and following Him.
Truth is living a life that is pleasing to God is the way to find meaning and happiness.
Truth is that God loves everyone… color or creed doesn’t matter… God loves everyone.
Jesus said we are set free by the truth. When we know the Lord, we are no longer in bondage to sin.
Today, have you been set free or, are you still in bondage to sin? Jesus wants us to know the truth and be set free.
