Verse 31-32: To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, "If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."
Like the verses say, whenever I'm tempted, remembering the truth sets me free.
What is this Truth that I helps me win?
It's the truth that Jesus, Son of God, who is also God, came to us in flesh and body, tested, suffered, proven innocent, sacrificed, and raised back to life, in order to free me from the slavery of sin and from God's judgment of my sins through the belief in this truth, in Jesus, and his teachings, that God is an all-powerful, all-knowing God, who reigns actively in this world today, who forgives me if asked for forgiveness, who loves me unconditionally, and who wants me to walk closely with him always, and wait for his day to come in patience and in fruitful work in taking part in his work.
