The Power of Continuing in God's Word

“Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

– John 8:31-32

  1. Its a choice

It’s the truth which we come to know that sets us free.

This verse indicates we have a choice to continue in the truth about Christ, to abide in Christ and his word, and that by our continuing we shall know the truth and the end thereof we shall be set free.

The result of our continuing is - our freedom.

The word of God never fails.

In Mark 9:23, Jesus said, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” Whosoever will press in and take hold of the promises of God, believe them and act on them. Not simply as a hearer but as a doer too continuing therein.

2. The word of God is forever

Jesus said heaven and earth shall pass away but the word of God shall not pass away.

The word of God abides forever. The same word from the Bible has been taught for generations. No matter how many times we have heard the word of God as we continue we are always able to catch fresh revelation that causes us to grow.

Scripture says in Hebrews 6:18, “It is impossible for God to lie” so we can trust that whatever God has written in his word he will perform. And as we continue as the word comes alive and becomes a reality we come to that place that sweet place where we can taste and see that the Lord is good.
