“Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” – (John 8:32)
Do you know that lies are like parasites? They cling to us and suck life light out of us. May be you can remember a particular lie or lies spoken and which forever shaped your perception of who we are or the perception of another person.
Lies are intended by the enemy to temper with our progress life. It is so bad when such lies affect the way we build our life together. Our response to lies could influence negative responses.
It is on these lies or the things we’ve done because of them that we perhaps have ever concluded that God doesn’t love us. But God’s love is so perfect.
You and I were trafficked and taken captive into slavery to the darkness. But God’s Love drew us out of the imprisonment of sin into the freedom that comes with salvation (John 3:16).
No matter what slavery did to us, God never got tired of us. He still so loved us that He sent Jesus to rescue us, bring us home to Him, and give us our lives back.
God very intentionally chose to inspire His Scriptures and so study God’s word to find answers to shield us from lies.
The word for forgiveness comes from words which together mean “to let go, release.” You and I need God to release us from the doubt of His perfect, unquenchable Love. This is what forgiveness is.
Before we believed in Jesus, we were bound by the law of the flesh: the enemy’s voice of doubt concerning God’s perfect Love. It was like our hands and feet were tied by his lies and we were held captive in enemy territory.
But when Jesus died on the cross, He untied those cords (those lies) holding us in foreign territory. And he began to lead us with his cords of Love back home to Himself. God says through prophet Hosea:
“I drew them with gentle cords, With cords of love, And I was to them as those who take the yoke from their neck. I stooped and fed them.” (Hosea 11:4)
God loves you perfectly. He never hasn’t. Let this law lead you and free you. The truth of God’s love really does set us free. (John 8:32)
