John writes “the truth will set you free” (John 8:32). And he adds later with a quote from Jesus, “I am the …truth…” John 14:16.
As an “overcomer” through Jesus I am reminded of the days in my addiction when I willingly lived a lie. An addict creates a reality that allows him or her to live in total deception. Living a lie reaps nothing but a deeper rut that eventually becomes a grave.
However, the One who states, “I am the way… the truth…the life” is also the one that stated “the truth shall (not maybe) will set you free”. And then He gives us the route to truth and the way by which we attain and retain truth. He adds “…when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth…” (John 16:13).
Thank you Father for your Holy Sprit who guides and leads us to real genuine “TRUTH… JESUS , our protector, provider, our healer of our addictions, bad behaviors…” that interferes with our relationship to your SON.
