Jesus is the Truth; He Will Set Us Free

John 8:31-42

Jesus requires more than enthusiasm.

Faith in Jesus means true discipleship.

To know Jesus Christ is to know the truth.

Then we are no longer enslaved to sin.


Jesus leads us to authentic freedom.

We are free for salvation history.

We are free to seek God’s infinite Love.

We are free from all forms of slavery.


Jesus cured addictions and afflictions.

His ministry had no contradictions.

Jesus Christ gave us the chance for freedom.

We are eligible for God’s Kingdom.


God sent Christ to us.  If we accept Christ,

Then we are the children of God.  Amen.

Patrick McCaskey
