Who doesn’t want to be free?
Free in the ultimate sense – free from fear, free from worry, free from the cares of this world. Jesus tells us the key to freedom begins by abiding in his word. As we abide in the word of God and follow Jesus as disciples, we will day by day know the truth – the truth about God – his sovereignty, his love, his power, and his great salvation in Jesus. And as we come to know the truth more and more, the more we will experience true freedom. First, we will be free from fear of condemnation because Jesus was condemned in our place. We will be free from worry because we will know the truth that our heavenly Father who provides for the sparrows will provide for us. We will be free from fear because we will know the truth that our God is sovereign, loving and infinitely wise, and that nothing will ever separate us from his love.
This doesn’t mean we won’t be tempted, but we will have God’s Word to fight every temptation with. We will have God’s promises to stand on. The truth will set us free. Jesus has demonstrated this to me again and again in my life. That’s why I’ve chosen John 8:31-32 as the Scripture memory song of the week:
…“If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” JN 8.31-32

As with other Scripture memory verses, I’d suggest you listen to the song from time to time, until you can remember it, and write the verses on a 3×5 card and review them on a regular basis.
