So often I hear people express their confusion about how to make the journey with Christ. Unfortunately, religion tends to make it a meaningless formula, never-ending process, with little value. In fact, 21st Century Christianity does the one thing God constantly warned us not to do.
We have two wonderful models we can observe to get a clear picture of walking with God. The Apostle Paul pointed to Israel as an example, 1 Corinthians 10:6. Everything about their journey from Egypt to Canaan and their subsequent establishing of the Kingdom serves to show us what to do and what not to do if we desire to live in the Kingdom.
The perfect example of the life of a believer is, however, only seen in the life of Jesus. No one’s preaching, lifestyle, or ministry should be our personal example and goal. If anyone other than Jesus is our standard of how to live and deal with life, our standard is just too low.
Fix your attention on Jesus, cling to His every word and every example and trust God to empower you to follow His example, and you absolutely can’t go wrong! JOIN ME this week and we’ll clearly see the path we can walk for the best quality of life possible!
