John 8:31-32 So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
God asks us not just to read His Word, but to abide in His Word. Live in the reality of His unchanging truth. Know in your inner self that His Word is alive! In the beginning was the Word, John 1 says, and the Word was with God and the Word was God…meaning Christ living with God. Jesus Christ brought us the living Word through His incarnation. When we read and ponder Christ’s life, we experience the Word made flesh. As Christ made His dwelling among us, so we dwell in God’s Word. Experience freedom in Christ by living out His Word. Claim God’s Word as truth and seek out His promises to be fulfilled. When we abide in God’s Word, we will know Christ and be free. Read, rejoice and abide in His unfailing Word.
