Freedom in the Truth

This excerpt from the Gospel for Wednesday in the Fifth Week of Lent speaks a fundamental fact:

John 8:31-32: “Jesus then said to those Jews who believed in him, ‘If you remain in my word, you will truly be my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

(Via USCCB.)

Jesus is God, the Creator of the world. Follow Him, accept and live by His teachings, and you are one with Him. This liberates you from the illusory passing of this world, with its “here today, gone tomorrow” values and institutions. This liberation is freedom, a freedom in Jesus and a freedom in the Truth that we all should dwell in.
