John 8:31 (NIV) To the Jews who had believed Him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
How are you holding on to Jesus’ teaching? Are you really His disciple? Does God’s Word linger in your mind and heart? Or is it in one ear and out the other? Be doers of the word (James 1:22). Just like it takes twelve years to build knowledge into children one layer at a time, so it takes a lifetime of discipleship to unpack Jesus’ teachings. Be patient and persistent in your faith journey. Study the Bible. It will bring you freedom.
