O LORD,
You are
my God;
I will
exalt you;
I will
praise
Your name,
for you
have done wonderful
things,
plans
formed of
old,
faithful
and sure.




Isaiah 25:1  ESV

The Right Path...

Psalm 119:105 ...Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.

Good morning,

One Sunday morning a mother was getting ready for church when she noticed her son wasn't up yet.
She finally went in to wake him up.
"Come on, get up...you'll miss church!" she said.
"No, I don't want to go!" came the reply from her son as he buried his head under the pillow.
"Yes, you have to get up for church,"the mother coaxed.
"No, I am not going to church. And I'll give you two reasons.
Number 1...
Nobody likes me and... 
Number 2... 
I don't like them."
The mother put her hands on her hips and replied indignantly...
"Well you ARE going to church and I'll give you two reasons why you are going... 

Number 1... 
You are 45 years old, and
Number 2...
You are the pastor!"
I know.
It's an old joke but it's another one of those I've always thought was funny.
The thing is, for me, the decision to go to church was made a long time ago.
It's not something I wrestle with...
However, there are decisions I do struggle with...
I'm sure you do, too.
If so, here is a list that might help.
When making a decision...

1. Ask for wisdom…
James 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.

2. Search the Scripture…
Psalm 119:105 Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.

3. Is this Christ-like…
1 John 2:6 …whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked.

4. Will this be something that would bring me shame at Christ’s return…
1 John 2:28 And now, little children, abide in him, so that when he appears we may have confidence and not shrink from him in shame at his coming.
5. What would godly people think about this
Hebrews 12:1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us…
So, if you're wrestling with a decision...
Big or small....
Take that list to heart and then remember this...

Number one...
Romans 12:2 Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
Number two...
Ephesians 5:8b ...Walk as children of light 9 (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), 10 and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord.
Number three...God has a path that is just right for you.

Have a great day. I hope to see you all this Sunday.

 

I know of nothing which I would choose to have as the subject of my ambition for life than to be kept faithful to my God till death, still to be a soul winner, still to be a true herald of the cross, and testify the name of Jesus to the last hour… .”  Charles Spurgeon

 
Have a great day. I hope to see you all this Sunday.
