“If you continue in my word, you are truly my disciples; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” John 8:31-32
What kind of freedom was Jesus promising here? This passage is selected for Reformation Sunday, which we will commemorate this week(wear red!). For Martin Luther the freedom was from the religious abuse that was being experienced in his church at the time. Knowing that we are saved by grace through faith and not by works set people free from the burden of trying to earn or pay for their forgiveness. But what about today? What do we need the gospel to set us free from in 2022? Can you imagine being set free from having to be exceptional? What would it feel like to be free from keeping up appearances? Can you imagine the freedom of lowering the mask you wear on social media, and just being real? The gospel is good news. What sounds like good news to you, today?
