Jesus said this in John 8:32 (NKJV):
“And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
Imagine, living in the TRUTH. Imagine, believing that TRUTH is NOT relative … but absolute!
I mean, that when you look in the mirror, you see what you see, and you deal with the reality of what you see.
That you choose not to run away from the person that God made … you are a boy, God expects your growth to manhood. You are a girl, God expects your growth to womanhood. And not the way the world defines it … but by the maturity that can only come from a walk with God and a steady focus on His Word.
I mean, that you trust the Lord with the life you have, the job you have, the money you got, the skin you wear, the voice you have, the body you’re dealt with and the history that you have.
I mean, that you refuse to hide under the shadow of conservative or liberal politics and policies and choose to abide under the shadow of the almighty (Psalm 91:1-2), you deny yourself of the luxury of staying silent, you look beyond your envy, your prejudice, your status, your politics, your opinions, your analysis … and you risk all to speak truth to power in the Lord and in faith to the point that you are suffering in and for Christ … for purpose far greater than yourself.
Living in Truth would and should shatter your fake-ness, turn your world upside down and make you live the most real life you’ve ever lived — where you’re free and free indeed (vs. 36)!
If we all REALLY lived in TRUTH, in CHRIST, we couldn’t possibly stay the same.
