Truth Works!

"You shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free" (John 8:32).

Truth works. It always has, and it always will. It works everywhere, for everybody, every time. If it is not working, then it is because someone, for some reason is not being truthful.

I have dedicated my life to this single cause -- bringing the truth of God's unchanging Word in an ever-changing world, so as to make the greatest change possible. It's the change of a human heart, and the resulting change which that produces in a person's life, and in our world.

Truth works by bringing freedom into every situation where it is applied. Freedom is the evidence of truth working. But freedom does not stand alone. it must be accompanied by personal responsibility. You and I must take personal responsibility for how we live -- what we think, what we say, and how we conduct ourselves in both our private and public interactions with others.

If we abdicate our personal responsibility, and choose to live negligent lives, then we forfeit our freedom. For someone else will step in and impose upon our lives how they think we ought to live.

Bondage of any kind is the consequence of spurning the truth and embracing a lie. Such an embrace will shackle us with fetters stronger than iron, and leave us languishing in a captive state that is far beneath the purposes for which God created us.

So, love truth and enjoy freedom by being personally responsible for your choices. It will make all the difference in your life, and in your sphere of influence.

Truth works. Pass it on.
