Jesus said to the people who believed in him, “You are truly my disciples if you remain faithful to my teachings. And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:31, NLT)
A disciple is a student. We are constantly learning and growing as a disciple of Jesus. We must put into practice the knowledge we learn through our studies in the Bible and remain faithful. As we delve deeper, the truth of Jesus Christ will be revealed to us and in this truth we will gain freedom from sin. As sinners we are slaves to sin, but if we are dedicated disciples we can choose to overcome this slavery.
