Abiding

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: John 8:31-38

"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).

Oh, the incredible benefit of abiding in God's Word (dwelling, remaining, staying). When we choose to be intentional and consistent about engaging God's Word--taking it in, spending time considering it, committing it to memory, putting what we've read and learned into practice through our actions--we'll know God's truth and that truth will indeed free.

Truth sets us free from the bondage of sin and the things of this world that are constantly bombarding us in an attempt to bog us down and get us off track spiritually. God's Word empowers us!

Are you regularly taking in God's Word, considering it and then putting it into practice in your daily life? If not, what steps do you need to take to make that happen? (Take a few minutes to think about what "abiding" in God's Word would look like in your life.) What's an example of one of the freedoms that knowing God's truth has given to you? (For example: freed from feelings of guilt and shame, freed from some sort of addiction, free to love all people, freed from living in fear, etc.) Tami

I need freed from living in fear.

" Truth sets us free from the bondage of sin.

I know that Jesus is the Truth and I need to abide
in His Word.
Like you have said in this lesson, I need to do more than regularly read God's Word I NEED to put what I have read and learn to practice it through my actions too is very important too.

Help me, Lord to give you my fears and put my trust in You to free me from the bondage of fear. Thank You, Lord for using your Word and Tami to help me to be freed!!
