    Never Wrong?

    Sun, Oct 23, 2016

    Sis. Crystal and I have this thing that we have joked about since we first married.  I’ll say it when we are discussing something that we disagree about.  I’ll say, “You know that I am never wrong.”  Well, the truth is, I am wrong more times than I want to admit, and there are just some times, we lets me think I’m right.

    Wouldn’t you agree that there are some things, that you just can’t be wrong about.  The Bible says in Proverbs 14:12 (KJV), “ There is a way which seemeth right unto a man,”.  In other words, it’s a road that looks good, feels good, sounds good.  However, let’s finish the verse, “but the end thereof are the ways of death.”  It doesn’t matter how good it looks, feels, or sounds, if it is taking you away from God, it’s a bad decision.

    Unfortunately, there are a lot of people that are wrong about the one thing that they can’t afford to be wrong about.  Jesus said, “wide is the gate and broad the way that leads to destruction, and many enter through it”.   If we are wrong about how to get to God, it is eternally fatal.  It is possible to be sincere about the road that you are on, because it seems right, but it ends far away from God.

    There are a lot of wrong ideas and how to get to God, but the truth is that there is only one way.  That is through Jesus Christ, and him crucified.  While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.  Jesus declared, “I am the way, the truth and the life, and no man comes to the Father but by me.”

    It is our prayer, that if you don’t know Him, that you will before you leave here today.
