Love rejoices with the truth

Jesus said in John 8:31, "If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free!"

In regard to all areas of our lives, the Word of God is pertinent. We know good and bad, truth and dishonesty through the words written in the bible. Many times we can twist those words to conform to what we choose to do that we think is right. But if we can read the scriptures, understand their meaning, and apply them to our lives, we will understand the truth that sets us free. Living for Lord daily.

1 John 3:16-20, "This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers. If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth."
