CityLight Pastor Commentary:
“If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:31-32). To abide means to live in; to never depart. Jesus has instructed us to live in His word. When you make a cup of tea, there is a steeping process: a process through which flavorless and colorless water is impacted by new contents introduced to it. In the same way, we are to be steeped in the Word of God: flavor is added to our lives and we are conformed into the image of Jesus Christ. Abide in His word, and you will find true freedom!
Father, thank You for the immense FREEDOM that comes with abiding in Your word! I pray that every thought, action and disposition in my life would be guided by Your word.
