Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 03/27/11

This week’s scripture is from John:

Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”    (John 8:31b-32)

So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.     (John 8:36)

Free. Free. Free. How good it is to be free in Christ, to know the freedom that comes with being a child of God, to know that your sins are forgiven and you have the promise of eternal life with Him. He came full of grace and truth, and that truth sets us free. In this world there are chains, but Jesus, the very Son of God, came, suffered, died, and rose again that we might know Him and the power of His love. We are His disciples, believers in His gospel, followers of His word, travelers in the Way, children of His mercy and grace, captives set free. What a blessing! Let us not fail to follow His teachings, to act on His word, to share the gospel, and to love as He has loved us.

May you remain in Jesus Christ, and may the truth of the Word continue to set you free.
