The Only Truth That Sets You Free

Summary:

  • Although there are many truths, there is only one truth that can set you free. That truth is Jesus. In many cases even His children need to be freed due to bondages/strongholds. Although it is difficult for someone to admit it, it is easy to be freed from bondage.


Key Scripture:

John 8:31-36 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.” They answered Him, “We are Abraham's descendants, and have never been in bondage to anyone. How can You say, ‘You will be made free’?” Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin. And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever. Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.

Three Points About Bondage:


#1) BONDAGE IS POSSIBLE

(Biblical References: John 8:31-32; Jeremiah 7:8-11; Romans 6:15-16)


  • Commit = prolonged sin, exercise, have purged


  • Bondage = Any impulsive or compulsive behavior that restricts you from living in and enjoying the freedom that Jesus died to give you.

#2) BONDAGE IS DIFFICULT TO ADMIT

(Biblical References: John 8:33; Genesis 4:1; Psalm 139:1-4)


  • Know = Greek. Yada = discover, discern, familiar friend, make to be, to know by experience, to enter into covenant together.


  • Meeting Jesus is how we get saved. Knowing Jesus is how we get set free.


  • The more we know Jesus, the more we are set free.

#3) BONDAGE IS EASY TO RELEASE

(Biblical References: 1 John 3:8; Mark 9:17-23)


  • When you truly know Christ and the power He has, you will understand that God never wanted you to become master of that pain and that bondage.

CONCLUSION

(Biblical Reference: Mark 5:1-6)


  • Three things we have to do to be free:

1. We need to know the Truth.

2. We need to believe the Truth.

3. We need to obey the Truth.


  • No one can stop you from receiving your freedom, from being released from all bondage... Except you.
