THE NARROW PATH TO RELATIONSHIP TO GOD - DAY 71
by Rev. Robert John Cericola, Carroll, OH - EUA
Freed by the Truth
John 8:31–32 (NKJV) Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
Following the commandment to love one another as Christ loved us is true abiding and the mark of a disciple. As we abide in Christ we become increasingly aware of His personality (His nature, temperament, traits, behavior) and in that way, we come to know the Truth. As we walk in the light of the Truth our temperament, our behavior, our traits, our nature changes from being self-centered to the love nature of Christ. We are set free from the deceptions of sin, the cares of this world, the pride of life, the lust of the flesh, the deceptions of religion, worldly wisdom, in other words we are being molded into the image of Christ!
1 Corinthians 14:1 (AMP) EAGERLY PURSUE and seek to acquire [this] love [make it your aim, your great quest]... Take Paul’s advice and make love (God is love) the great quest of your life.
