Today's Verse: John 8:31-32 (KJV)

Tuesday, August 24, 2021

If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
— John 8:31-32 (KJV)

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Truth is not something we know, it is something we live. Jesus reminds us that we must not only know his teaching, but also obey it. However, obedience is one of the proofs of our discipleship and doorway to freedom and truth.

My Prayer...

Father, forgive me for taking obedience to your will so lightly. Sometimes your way seems restrictive and hard. However, dear Father, deep in my heart I do genuinely believe that your will is a blessing and not a hindrance. Use me to help others find joy in obeying you, too. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
