The Truth Shall Make You Free

Encouragement for your daily walk with God 

The famed Christian Missionary Alliance pastor and author, A. W. Tozer, once said, "If God gave you a watch, would you honor Him more by asking Him what time it is or by simply consulting the watch." God has given us something far greater than a watch, He has given us His Word. I think of it as a human repair manual, which must be read and obeyed. Following its instruction leads us to the truth, and the truth sets us free.

In some places in the world, it is a death sentence to possess a Bible. Many saints today are martyred in astounding numbers over something, which many American Christians take for granted. 

We are blessed to have a Bible and the freedom to read it. So, may I ask, what do you do with yours? Does it sit on your desk or coffee table for quick pick up as you leave for a church service? Does it stand unused on a bookshelf? Since it is the best human repair manual, written by God Himself, read it. Study it. Apply it. It is the very words of God to you. 

Get into the habit of reading it daily. Be diligent to do what it says, and you will be amazed by the changes in your life and the blessings poured out on you. There is a blessing and a responsibility in having a Bible.

Then Jesus said to those who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. 32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8.31-32
