Even as he spoke, many believed in him. 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.” They answered him “We are Abraham’s descendants and have never been slaves of anyone. How can you say that we shall be set free?” Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin.”

Are you living for the truth or in the truth?
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have life everlasting
If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and He will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking
For the Lord gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding
I love those who love me and those who seek me find me
You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness
Would you prefer to be a slave to God? or the opposition of God?
