Do you want to be a disciple of Christ? Do you want to know the truth? Do you want freedom from sin? If you answer yes to all three questions, zero in on what Jesus told the Jews,

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” (John 8.31–32).

Abide, or live in the word of Christ, and you shall experience three blessings:

  1. You will be a disciple of Christ
  2. You will know the truth
  3. The truth shall make you free

Continue to read and to meditate in the word of God daily and you shall discover just what Jesus meant and why those three things are blessings.
