Daily Word Of God

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 learn the truth, and the truth will make 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 made free?” ’

Jesus replied: ‘I tell you solemnly, everyone who commits sin is a slave. Now a slave’s place in the house is not assured, but a son’s place is assured . So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed.’

Today's Pointers on God's Word

As you read the passage what words, phases or meanings caught your attention?

  • Jesus advised his followers to make His Word their home so that the truth that He teaches will set them free; free from ignorance, from despair, and from guilt.


  • Sin enslaves the sinner in despair and guilt.  However, if our hearts are open to God’s mercy, we will be empowered by the Holy Spirit to overcome these emotional pains of ours.


  • “Lord Jesus, empower us with Your Word to overcome all that draws us away from you”.
