As believers in Jesus Christ, we must pursue and embrace the path of life and light that God has arranged for us. Jesus made it profoundly clear that all mankind must “enter by the narrow gate, for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and many are those who enter by it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and few are those who find it.” God does not leave it up to man to determine right from wrong and truth from lies but has given all the opportunity to choose the light of the gospel of Jesus Christ to illuminate his path and turn from a life of darkness and destruction.
As followers of Jesus, we must trust him completely and lean not unto our own understanding. We must acknowledge Him in all our ways, and He will make our paths straight.
As we grow in Christ and embrace His path of life and light, we will learn to discern His voice of truth from Satan’s voice of deception and lies.
In Proverbs 4:14-19 we read, “Do not enter the path of the wicked and do not proceed in the way of evil men. Avoid it, do not pass by it; turn away from it and pass on. For they cannot sleep unless they do evil; and they are robbed of sleep unless they make someone stumble. For they eat the bread of wickedness, and drink the wine of violence. But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn that shines brighter and brighter until the full day. The way of the wicked is like darkness; they do not know over what they stumble.”
Are you determined to allow the Holy Spirit to help you avoid this stumbling and darkness and follow Paul’s example to embrace and REACH FORWARD TO WHAT LIES AHEAD AND PRESS ON TOWARD THE GOAL FOR THE PRIZE OF THE UPWARD CALL OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS?
