The Future Is As Bright As The Promises Of God

“And you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” John 8:32 (NASB)
The way of freedom, Jesus declared, is an intimate relationship with Him who is the truth (John 14:6). Truth is much more than mere facts or data; it is a Person. Pilate’s question, “What is truth?” (John 18:36), should have been, “Who is truth?”, and the “Who” is Jesus.
Jesus’ linking of truth with being free is significant, especially in today’s world where freedom is often equated with not adhering to any kind of absolute truth. The knowledge of Christ frees one from ignorance, superstition, and bad habits; but more to the point, it frees from the slaveries of pride, self, and sin, which are more binding than any chains. Consider Paul and Silas, who did not let the restrictions of a maximum security prison silence their praise (Acts 16:25). In reality, they were free before their chains were broken.
