“The Way”

leave a comment »


What shall be said of “The Way”?  The Way is a term God uses to describe how a man must live his life if he is to please his Maker. 

Some say They Way is too hard.  That’s because they don’t want to let go of their self interests.  They are considering their selfish desires as more important than God’s ways.  To them, it is a hard thing to ask them to forgive others.  It is too hard to ask them to be merciful to their enemies.  It is too much to ask them to pray without ceasing.  And it is over their heads to ask them to worship God in Spirit and Truth.  The fact is, such people cannot worship God in Spirit.  For their selfish nature blocks the Spirit’s prompting.  And as for worshiping in truth, they are still living in the Great Lie.  What is truth to such people?

But the one who humbles themself before the Lord will know The Way is easy.  It is not man’s accomplishments that will cause a him to be acceptable before the Lord.  We begin by admitting that we are fools about what is true.  We ask God to show us what Truth is.  And when He shows us, we gladly lay down our foolish ways and spend a great amount of energy adopting that to our mind. 

The Christian is one who has admitted they are not able to please the Lord.  And it must be said that it is the work of Jesus that makes us acceptable.  I’m not talking about the righteousness He brings us to that makes us acceptable.  It is faith in what Jesus did for us when He hung on that “tree” and became our perfect sacrifice.  It is Jesus who has been raised to Godship.  And He alone can make you acceptable before His Father. 

If you’re one of those who think “The Way” is too hard, then you have my pity.  But it doesn’t have to remain like it is for you.  Summon every strength you have to become feeble before the Lord of Life.  This is the beginning of “The Way”.

By His Grace.
