A Mystical Journey

“If you make my word your home, you will come to know the truth, and that truth will set you free.”  John 8:31-31 NJB

This is one of my favorite Bible passages. It contains four words that bear examining in great deal: word, home, truth, and free.

The word that it speaks of is the Greek, Logos, or the self-revealing nature of God.  God wants us to know Him so He fills the universe with examples of His presence and nature.  The most obvious being His Son, Jesus.  When we encounter the evidence, we can’t help but be changed.

Being changed, we need to make Him our home; living out the truth of His presence and love.  As with our physical home, it is here that we find safety, resources, and happiness.

By living these we will come to know the truth; we are created by God and invited to live in Him in perfect relationship.  That truth will set us free.

Free, in that nothing more is expected of us than to love Him and our neighbor.
