If we search the Bible through, we will find it saturated with Truth. I believe that God gave us Truth, because as the scripture says, ‘The Truth Will Set You Free’. My sentiment is that God also gave us Truth to guide us through the deceit and lies of the enemy.
Satan, on the other hand, tries to keep us from the Truth. This is because the truth will not only set us free, but it will also set us sailing. Sailing in the sense that, as we discover the Truth, we set our sails from darkness to Light. Jesus said “I Am the Truth, I Am the Way, I Am the Life – John 14:6.” He also said that “I Am the Light of the World – John 8:12.“
Truth then, is not ‘It’ but rather ‘He.’ The Truth that we have, that will both set us free and sailing, is Jesus Christ of Nazareth. We have a Living Truth, Who is both a Redeemer and a Friend. Our responsibility, as a result, is to Know the Truth, because we must be set free, and sailing.

It Is Power To Know The Truth
It is power to know that ‘The Truth will set you free’ . To know the truth, is to know the divine substance from which you were hewn and carved out. Knowing this Truth, about your Divine origins, will furthermore free you from every possible self imposed limit. The Truth is that we are God substance, with God capacity. Here is the reference or our origin from the Bible;
This Truth is hard to consider, and even harder to believe, yet it is pure and precious. It is utter foolishness to know the Truth and continue to live in bondage. We must destroy all our limits, and we must set targets instead. This is because the Truth justifies our limitlessness.
It is true, that when we limit ourselves, we are also limiting the Power of God in us. What is also true, is that we are capable, not because of our own strength, but because we are the progeny of God. We are God’s offspring, with God capacity and God strength. Take this in, and swallow it like a holy pill, because this Divine Truth will empower you with super natural strength.
The Truth Will Set You Sailing
The truth will set you free, but what many don’t realize, is that it will also set you sailing. In other words, ‘To be set free, is to be set sailing.’
Consider the very idea of being set free. To acquire freedom means that there was some amount of hinderance. Now consider when this hindrance is removed. Imagine this newfound freedom setting sail !
The Bible speaks of freedom in the most profound ways. Let’s look at Galatians 5:1 for example;
Imagine a free person living in captivity. Consider the great folly of this self imposed imprisonment. Perhaps our greatest captivity is that we often forget we are free. It’s not that we are working to be free, or we are hoping to be free, it is that we are fully free to be what we must be!
Our freedom was not attained by our own might, or our power, but our freedom came from the shedding of the Blood of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Freedom then, is not a wishful thinking, it is a reality and a Godly right. Amidst this, freedom is also our responsibility. There is a song that says “I Am Free, Free to lift my hands, Free to say Amen, I Am Free! – Kirk Franklin.”
I agree with this song 100 percent, because for a fact, we are free to be and to do with no set limits.
Freedom is our responsibility
Freedom does not negate responsibility. The Apostle Paul said in 1 Corinthians 10:23;
All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.
Even though we are free, it is our responsibility to remain free. One of the reasons why a judge might retain an inmate, is because that judge might feel the inmate will use his or her freedom to commit another crime. Also, a re-offence would result in further imprisonment of that inmate. So the judge keeps that individual to ensure there is not a recommittal of the crime.
It is the same way with us, as free sons and daughters of the Living God. We are free until we commit sin, then we fall in the bondage of sin.
I have a friend that once said to me, “A wise man is a man that does wise things, and not merely think about wise things.” For a moment, I considered what he was saying, and I found it to be profoundly true. It’s simply that, ‘a wise man does wise things‘. If a wise man does wise things, then we must use our freedom to do wise things.
The Truth is that a wise person will seek to do what is profitable, and sin is not profitable. A person that is free, will no longer live in sin. This is because to live in sin is synonymous to living in the prison of sin. So then, the truly free, will be one who no longer lives in sin.
Let us have a look at what the bible says about truth
On a final note, let’s rest on the premise that ‘the Truth will set you free. This is not merely a premise, but it is a promise from God Who is true. Let’s also reiterate the fact that Truth is a Person. Christ is Truth, and until we come into recognition and acceptance of Truth, we can never be fully free.
I pray that God will reveal Himself to you, and that as you seek Him you will find Him. Of a fact, it is true, that the Truth will not only set you free, but it will also set you sailing!
God Bless You!
