We place our feet, one in front of the other and we walk… we walk down a path. Where that path leads, we really have no clue, but we believe. What do we believe? We believe in the truth… Jesus. We believe that there is a path for us, the right path. One where we will find peace, joy, love… As we believe we know in our hearts that those there things, peace, joy and love, are what the Father wants for us. Why? Because He loves us. How do we know that? Because of Jesus… God the Father sacrificed His beloved Son for us, His children… because of His love for us… I know you have heard the famous, almost too often quoted verse,
For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16 (NLT)
God loved us that much. So don’t you think that he would be there to show you the right way, the right path, so you may have peace, joy and love? He not only wants us to have eternal life with Him, but also abundant life on earth…
Jesus told this simple story, but they had no idea what he was talking about. So he tried again. “I’ll be explicit, then. I am the Gate for the sheep. All those others are up to no good—sheep stealers, every one of them. But the sheep didn’t listen to them. I am the Gate. Anyone who goes through me will be cared for—will freely go in and out, and find pasture. A thief is only there to steal and kill and destroy. I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of. John 6:6-10 (MSG)
Abundant life, life full of peace, joy and love. “More than we ever dreamed of” as The Message Bible says. I like the sound of that. And, I believe in that, because I do believe my Father loves me that much and wants that for me. Follow His leading and walk the path He leads me to and He will shower His blessings on me.
If you’ll willingly obey,
you’ll feast like kings. Isaiah 1:19 (MSG)
I think I am ready… so now I place my feet, one in front of the other and head down the path of righteousness hand in hand with my Father.
