“There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death” Proverbs 14:12
This scripture really spoke to me during this weekend and the more I think about it the more I feel broken hearted. It truly breaks saddens me the fact that people think that there are various good ways and all lead to heaven. This is what the master of deceit is trying to implant and feed us with throughout all our lives, whether we are at school, during TV and Radio programs and any other influencing media. It is ideal to think that we can have a personalised god made to measure to meet our needs and desires but the truth was never further from this ideal.
God is one and His will is one. He did not want us to enter into a confusion by giving us multiple ways but provided one true way, The WAY JESUS. For many it is not an enticing road to take and therefore many choose other more ‘convenient’ ways which satisfy the cravings of their desires.
When someone tells me that a life in Christ is boring, I tell them that they still did not taste and seen His greatness, providing the joy of living a purposeful life, a journey with more than just a hope but an assurance of eternal life. Now I question, what else in this world can give you such guarantees?
The Bible should be your only measuring stick, it is God’s true will for humanity, it is true that most of the time it will not tickle your ears but deep inside when you open your heart to it, you will know that it is the truth which will set you free.
Would love to hear your comments, testimonies and reflections about this.
