Have you ever really considered who sets you free and how this is done? Many people would say that Jesus is who set’s us spiritually free and this is correct. But if you were to ask many Christians what it is about Jesus that breaks the spiritual chains that hold us down a large majority would not know this answer. It is the Holy Spirit that draws us to Jesus in seeking the truth and when we discover Jesus we connect in the spirit in the Lord. For Jesus said in John 14:6 “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
The interesting part about this lesson of truth is that when we truly come to Jesus that He will give us a hunger for the truth that is fed in the spirit as we commit ourselves in the Word of God. Jesus was the spirit of truth that came to life through the virgin birth of Mary and where so many converts backslide is by not committing themselves in the Word of God to deepen their relationship with the Lord and allowing the Holy Spirit to transform their life further into the truth.
Another reason that many converts backslide is because of our own lack of teaching and accepting the responsibility of discipleship with the individual that God has put in our path. How bad would it be to lead someone to Christ but then find out their blood was on our hands because we failed to follow through in helping them to walk on their own with the Lord?
