In John 8 Jesus is talking to His disciples and telling them that truth (the truth of His Word) that will set them free.
The same is true for us today; it is knowledge of the truth that will set us free.
From this we can also extrapolate a very important truth in our lives.
This is that error will keep us in bondage!
If we are in bondage in an area of our lives today, for example illness, poverty, depression and sorrow, there must be error in the way we are thinking and believing.
If we knew the truth in that area we would be free is what Jesus said, so we must believe error instead of truth in one way or another.
We all know that the only way to dispel darkness is to bring in light.
In the same way, the only way to dispel bondage is to bring in truth.
If we bring in truth from the Word of God, believe it and understand it (or in other words know it) we will be set free from bondage.
For example if you suffer from rejection you need to know the truth in the Word that says you have been accepted in the beloved (Ephesians 1 v 6).
If you are in poverty or illness you need to know the truth in the Word that says you can be prosperous and healed because of the finished work of Jesus (2 Corinthians 8 v 9 and 1 Peter 2 v 24).
Indeed you need to know the truth in the Word that says above all things God wants you to live in health and prosperity (3 John 2).
When you replace error with knowledge of the truth of Jesus and His finished work you will dispel bondage from your life; the Word guarantees this!
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord for the truth in your Word, help me to desire to know your Word more”.
John 8 v 32…..And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free
