Pr. 16:25: “There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.”
This verse is so fitting in our world. Although, it has been since time began. Didn’t satan twist words just so to coerce Eve into believing the way she was taking was right? Certainly its end was the way of death.
Today, he is still doing the same. He twist words to make them sound right. Sure, there may be some truth in the words he whispers, but is it THE truth? The Word of God reveals the truth of Jesus who is THE WAY, the truth, and the Life.
It is an imperative that we verify our path by the Word of God. The way we’re headed may seem right, but is it truly? In order to end up with eternal life, we must go by way of Jesus Christ. All other ways, even as right as they may seem, lead to death. Find the true Way.
Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it. Mt. 7:13-14
Jamie, great words. I have been pondering the exact same thing over the last few weeks. This was a confirmation to me of something I feel the Lord impressed on me personally. Thanks for writing this.
That was all God, I can assure you.
I am so glad I was able to type the words He needed you to hear. 🙂
I love you, my beautiful sister.
