Scripture reading: John 8:31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, [then] are ye my disciples indeed; 32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
We are Christ’s disciples by continuing in the word of truth. Truth is very much connected with our relationship with Jesus Christ. If I will have a deep relationship with Jesus I will have a deep relationship with truth, because
