This is the Way…
Do you remember playing “Follow the leader” as a child? (Do they still play that in this day and age??) The leader would walk around a tree – and the friends would follow; the leader would jump over a puddle; everyone else jumped over too. On it went until someone else wanted to be the next leader.
Playing this game, you never knew where you were going or where you would end up! Or even who was going to be the leader. Sometimes an argument would break out if more than one child wanted to lead.
How fun to play! But how confusing, how sad for those wanting to get along, when there was more than one vying to be the leader.
In reading our Bible there should be no confusion Who the Leader should be.
Who are you following? Who is leading you? Do you stray off from the One guiding you? Do you want to give up? Do you try and take control?
There are a lot of things and people who try to lead us away from God.
Think of the verse from Isaiah 30:21 – “This is the way, walk in it.” Here, the people were straying, but were reminded who and where to return to if they wanted their lives to be right with God.
This was an Old Testament scripture, but we knew the promise of our savior Jesus Christ was in the future, and today we have the Triune God; God the Father, the Son Jesus, and the Holy Spirit to guide us.
We just have to listen. It’s spelled out in our Daily Devotions, in Sunday sermons, in Christian books (be choosy), and on
Christian television (be selective). Don’t give Satan a foothold.
There’s only one True Leader to follow, who loves you and your utmost best.
“This is the way, walk in it”
The Path – the directions – the map – is in the Bible”
Pay close attention.
John 14:6 – “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one come to the Father except through Me.”
Read, if you will, 1 Corinthians 3: 1-23 (below)
The Church and Its Leaders
3 Brothers and sisters, I could not address you as people who live by the Spirit but as people who are still worldly—mere infants in Christ. 2 I gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for it. Indeed, you are still not ready. 3 You are still worldly. For since there is jealousy and quarreling among you, are you not worldly? Are you not acting like mere humans? 4 For when one says, “I follow Paul,” and another, “I follow Apollos,” are you not mere human beings?
5 What, after all, is Apollos? And what is Paul? Only servants, through whom you came to believe—as the Lord has assigned to each his task. 6 I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow. 7 So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow. 8 The one who plants and the one who waters have one purpose, and they will each be rewarded according to their own labor. 9 For we are co-workers in God’s service; you are God’s field, God’s building.
10 By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as a wise builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one should build with care. 11 For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12 If anyone builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, 13 their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person’s work. 14 If what has been built survives, the builder will receive a reward. 15 If it is burned up, the builder will suffer loss but yet will be saved—even though only as one escaping through the flames.
Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst? 17 If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy that person; for God’s temple is sacred, and you together are that temple.
18 Do not deceive yourselves. If any of you think you are wise by the standards of this age, you should become “fools” so that you may become wise. 19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight. As it is written: “He catches the wise in their craftiness”; 20 and again, “The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are futile.”]21 So then, no more boasting about human leaders! All things are yours, 22 whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or life or death or the present or the future—all are yours, 23 and you are of Christ, and Christ is of God.
