Dear Friend in the Lord,

Freedom in Life with Faith”:  In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaimed and assured the Jews, “If you make My Word your home; you will be My disciple, and you will know the Truth; and the Truth will set you free.”  Ponder on, “God’s Word in the Bible, will reveal to us His Divine Truth: to guide, inspire and empower us to live more authentically and overcome all our sins.

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

John 8:31-36

To the Jews who believed in him Jesus said: ‘If you make my word your home you will indeed be my disciples; you will come to know the truth, and the truth will set you free.’

They answered, ‘We are descended from Abraham and we have never been the slaves of anyone; what do you mean, “You will be set free?” ’

Jesus replied: ‘In all truth I tell you, everyone who commits sin is a slave. Now a slave has no permanent standing in the household, but a son belongs to it for ever. So if the Son sets you free, you will indeed be free.’
