THEME: THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE
TEXT: GALATIANS 4:1–3
MEMORY VERSE: JOHN. 8:32 “And you shall know the Truth and the Truth shall set you free.
The word ‘Truth’ in the Bible is different from honesty and faithfulness. Truth is personified in Jesus Christ. All the words He said are true. In life situations, there is nothing that can set man free like the Truth. There is a maxim that Truth is always constant like the Northern Star. Having and believing in the Truth set one’s path on the way of success and great achievement.
Paul stresses the fact of the law that came through Moses. The law became the school teacher in religion. Where there is no law there is no sin. But law lacks the power to set man free because it cannot take man to the point of Truth. The Truth appeared when the “fullness of the time” came in person of Jesus. Jesus came to fulfil the law and in Him man is set free.
Are you struggling with doubt, unbelief, fear of what tomorrow may bring, discouragement, disappointment? I admonish you to embrace Jesus, the all-wise and all-knowing God, who is the embodiment of Truth. He knows the way and has the power over all that troubles your mind. He knows the end from the beginning. He has passed through this world and experienced all the situations that you struggle with, even worse situations than yours. All these He went through, not because of His own freedom but for you to be set free. Remember Jesus was betrayed by His closet disciple, Judas Iscariot. King David was also betrayed by his adviser, Ahithophel, and his son, Absalom, waged war against him! Have you been deceived by people with sugar-coated mouth? Remember the temptation of Jesus by Satan. I counsel you, have the Truth and He will set you free and give you the discerning spirit.
HYMN: EMHB 635 – JESUS, MY TRUTH, MY WAY
PRAYER: Heavenly Father, set my feet and heart on the path of truth always in Jesus’ name
