John 8:31-32, NIV: To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus
said, If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know
the truth, and the truth will set you free.
Holding to the teaching of Christ's truth requires discipline and determination.
No surprise there, right? We know that if we are to become more like Christ,
it will mean sacrificing more each day to learn to walk in His likeness. It will
mean a willingness to forfeit our lives and wants for His will and way. The amazing
thing is that as we hold to His ways, we find freedom--as we give up what we consider to
be life, it is then we find true life. So, what are you holding onto today?
Maybe its time to let go. Freedom awaits.
