– Christmas Eve


Read John 8:30-32

30. As he spake these words, many believed on him.

31. Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;

32. And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

MEMORISE: And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free (John 8:32)


Merry Christmas, in advance. As we remember the sacrificial birth of our Lord Jesus Christ, what a time to remind ourselves of the fact that true freedom comes from Him!

The Jews of Jesus’ days, from an early age, grew up studying and learning the Law. Yet, in ways very similar to us today, they still battled with fears, anxieties, sicknesses, and all kinds of oppression, bondages and addictions. The ‘truth’ that Jesus was talking about couldn’t have been the Law, which the people couldn’t find freedom in. The truth that makes free is the truth of God’s grace – the truth that He came to give us. His Word proclaims, ‘…grace and truth came through Jesus Christ’ (Jn. 1:17).

The good news is that, grace came to set you free from the curse of the law. Grace is not a doctrine, or a theological subject. When Jesus talks about grace, He is talking about Himself. Grace is a person. Grace is Jesus Himself. The truth that has the power to fling wide open your prison’s doors is His grace. His grace is the antidote to counteract every poison in your mind! When you encounter Jesus, taste His love and savour His lovingkindness and tender mercies, every wrong belief dissolves in the glory of His love. And every dark thought and evil addiction that may have held you captive cannot but scatter, when it is exposed to the light of His grace!

Your freedom is found in rightly believing in Jesus – His favour and His love in your life. When you believe right about His grace, you will begin to live right. The more you see in His Word what His grace has done for you, the more fears, condemnation, depression and destructive habits will lose their grip on you. The more you believe and enjoy His grace and love, the more you will find the Lord’s wisdom, stability and peace guiding your decisions and actions. Right believing always produces right living and right results.


1. I receive rest in Your love and grace for me, today and always, O Lord, in Jesus’ name.

2. Let the truth of Your Word, O Lord, pervade every sector of my life.

3. Lord, deal with and restore those trying to water down the truth of Your Word in order to gain more membership and make more money in churches.
