Jesus Is The Way.

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

We have to realize that Jesus’ way is right and true – human understanding cannot compare to the mind of God. People often get confused, and deceive themselves into thinking that God doesn’t know as much about their lives as they do, and exchange eternal blessing for temporary sinful satisfaction. “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 way of a fool us right in his own eyes, but a wise man listens to advice.” (Proverbs 12:15) “There is a path before each person that seems right, but it ends in death.” (Proverbs 16:25)

We must realize this truth: “No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.” (Hebrews 12:11) Any discipline or trial given to us by God while we follow Him comes from a heart of love for us. “Know then in your heart that, as a man disciplines his son, so the Lord your God disciplines you.” (Deuteronomy 8:5)
