Not my direction, but His

I cannot say
"This is the way you should go"
I can suggest
I can point you to The One
who is The Way
I can provide examples
of ways I have gone
that have led down sinful paths

It is for you to keep your mind on The Lord
For you to listen to His Voice
For you to study and meditate on His Word
For you to pray
For you to thank
For you to trust
For you to believe
For you to obey

Each of us has been given life
to which we owe our every fiber
to Him who died, was buried and rose again,
for us

You are free
in God, to whom you belong
Are you ... truly free?

Who is it who condemns
who judges
who punishes

It is not me
I am not the way
nor the truth
nor the life

My way leads to uncertainty
My truth is whatever I choose
My life is all about me, mine, myself

Jesus is The One
who says and is
"I AM the way, the truth and the life.
NO ONE comes to the Father except through Me."
(John 14:6)

How can we truly live
if our whole being
is not focused on
The Way of Christ
The Truth of Christ
The Life of Christ

It is not just in arriving, but in the journey.

(based on readings in Isaiah 30:21, Romans 8:1-2, John 3:16-18, John 10:27)
