Reflections… a Scripture verse and inspiration for daily living [3/9]

Passage: John 8:31-47
Verse: John 8:31b-32 (NIV 2011)
“If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

Oh, the blessings of discipleship!  Often we think about the challenges or effort required to be one of Christ’s disciples, but often miss or ignore the many blessings we receive because we have chosen to follow Christ.  The blessings we receive will only grow as we grow in our relationship to Christ and continue to follow Him and His ways.  Have you experienced the freedom mentioned of in this Scripture verse?  It produces a peace beyond understanding.  May we be empowered by the Holy Spirit to adhere to the teaching of Christ.  May we seek to grow as a disciple of Jesus Christ.  May we be freed from all of those sinful thoughts, words, actions, and behaviors that bind us.  May we be truly set free.  (inspired by Reflecting God – Devotions for Holy Living, WordAction Publishing Company)
