5-35 Application for Sept 6, 2020 :: John 8:31-32

5-35 Application for Sept 5-6, 2015 :: John 8:31-32

===

“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

The key word here is ‘abide’, isn’t it?

What does it mean to abide?

I like the first definition in the dictionary: “to remain, continue, stay”

That’s what we want to do with Jesus’s word. We want to stay with him and remain with his commandments – to continue to consider his will for us.

That’s what we’ll do –
– if we want to be Jesus’ disciples.
– if we want to know the truth.
– if we want to be free.

We know there is cost to staying with Jesus, but it’s clear there is a greater reward.

John 8
