Happy President’s Day!
or is it . . .
Happy Washington’s Birthday Day!?!
Ahh, the simplicity of his answer. He must have felt a tremendous amount of fear about telling the truth, after all, his deed would probably bring some consequence. Yet, George Washington still chose truth.
John 8: 32 says “Then you will know the Truth, and the Truth will set you free.” In this verse, we know the Truth to be the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and the freedom that surrender will bring.
In the next verse of John 8 God’s Word says; “They answered him, “We are Abraham’s descendants and have never been slaves of anyone. How can you say that we shall be set free?”” They didn’t get it. Jesus just gave them absolute truth . . . Believe in Him and have everlasting life. Simple. Why did the people Jesus was teaching make it complicated?
If only they could be like the young George Washington. Believe in the truth enough to risk giving all to it, because if we do – the Truth will set you free!
