For Freedom

Many of us know this verse and one that precedes it about the truth setting us free - but the whole context is sobering:

“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.” They answered him, “We are offspring of Abraham and have never been enslaved to anyone. How is it that you say, ‘You will become free’?” Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who practices sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” John‬ ‭8:31-36‬

Bottom line is that to truly be free we need ‭to abide in His word, acknowledge our issues with sin and walk in the mercy and grace Christ provided for us - spreading it wherever we go. This is freedom in Christ, deliverance from sin! There are many who don’t live in physical freedom like we do, they’re in prison or under oppressive governments- but even they can still be free indeed.
