Proverbs for Living - 16

Proverbs 16:25 (CSB) - "There is a way that seems right to a person, but its end is the way to death."

A man recently told me that I am a dying breed. I smiled and replied that I wasn't sure to what he was referring. He said, "You are a dying breed of preachers who truly believe that the Bible is the Word of God. That it means what it says. You are willing to preach and teach it as it is."

As I mused over his comments, I realized that there are many still standing strong on God's Word, but the media and the world try to get us to believe that there are many ways to be a part of God's Kingdom - outside of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We have cults today that carry the name Christian but deny the deity of Christ. We have many theologians today who deny the inspiration and inerrancy of Scripture. And we are familiar with the many false religions in the world who promote other ways and means to achieve eternal life.

We are told in the Gospel of John that any man who tries to get in any other way than Jesus Christ is a thief and robber. So, it is our obligation to proclaim the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus to all. Salvation is by grace through faith in the good news of Jesus Christ. He is the way, and there is no other way. Our society today has been taken captive by the hedonists, the secular humanists, the liberals, the modernists, and the cultists. What we need to do is come back to the simple basic principles of the Word of God, and to allow it to remove the vain and scheming thoughts projected by the world around us.

Prayer: Precious Deliverer, My Savior Jesus Christ, I see You as THE WAY, and that the other plans, schemes, and teachings of many will not bring me closer to You, but lead me to the realm of death, Hell, and destruction. Amen.
