We don't study the Bible in order to learn it. We study it to learn Him. Many teachings exist today that focus on what we are to do rather than knowing our Savior more intimately. The emphasis is so heavy on religious performance and so light on Christ Himself. The focus of Christian living is not on doing the right things, it's about knowing Him intimately. All the doing flows freely from that relationship. His works flow through us as the Holy Spirit surrenders our will to His. When the focus is on doing the right things, we end up with nothing more than religious dead works, regardless of how admirable they may look to those around us.
1 Corinthians 8:1-2, "Knowledge makes arrogant, but love edifies. If anyone supposes that he knows anything, he has not yet known as he ought to know" The truth will not set you free until you connect to the living truth (Jesus Christ) by faith. Eternal truth is personified in Christ, and by knowing Him, we are set free from the lies about ourselves, our lives, others, and even God. By intimately knowing the One who is the truth of the Father expressed to us, you will know that truth, and He certainly will set you free. Paul wrote these words in 2 Corinthians 3:17, "Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty." Amen! :-)
