“. . . If you remain in my word, you will truly be my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:31
Prophetic words about truth and freedom are powerful benchmarks for life. Beyond being a great quote for political speeches, this passage defines the meaning discipleship in a profound and simple way. Open the Scripture. Read. Remain there. Nothing more, nothing less. Strangely, when we do this, we come to realize that there is no freedom without recognition of limits. To be set free is not about getting rid of personal boundaries but living within the boundaries of God’s love, gifted to all humankind.
