Jesus Is The Way.

“Follow the way of love.” – I Corinthians 14:1

“Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.’ ” (John 14:6) The way of the cross truly does lead to our eternal Home. People often mistake their own way for God’s way. They say that God is not good, yet make their own standards for right and wrong, which are actually immoral. “Yet your people say, ‘The way of the Lord is not just.’ But it is their way that is not just.” (Ezekiel 33:17)

The Lord warns against those who follow their own way, rather than following Jesus, Who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life: “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.” (Isaiah 5:20) Unfortunately, our world currently has (and has always been!) in conflict with God. More often than not, various forms of sin and evil are praised and rewarded, while good and righteous standards are put down as “hateful” or “intolerant.” We must remember, “There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death.” (Proverbs 16:25)
