Jesus said, “You will know the truth and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:32) But, have you noticed, many people know the truth, yet aren’t free … from anxiety, addiction, anger, you name it.
What gives? Where’s the disconnect?
A full answer would take a whole book. In fact, that’s what Spiritual Self Defense is all about.
But here’s a partial answer: God designed us to know truth on two different levels—an intellectual level, and a much deeper level—what I call gut-level truth. Many people have truth on the intellectual level, but haven’t yet received that same truth at that deeper level where freedom can take place.
Jesus wants to bring His truth to those deeper places in our souls where transformation really takes place.
BTW, wishing my wife, Kim, a happy birthday today (September 17)!
