“I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth”.
3rd John 1:4
I sometimes find myself asking the question, “How’d I get here?”
The walk that I desire, is to walk in Truth, guided by Love. I want to make sure the path I’m on is one that will help me to lead a life that glorifies God. At the end of the day, the only thing that matters is that I was on “The Road” that was paved for me.
The map of this road is sometimes hard to read, there seems to be too many options to take short cuts. I like to think my motives are pure, but sometimes the easy way wins and I find myself asking, “How did I get here?”.
I have to remember where I came from, “The Road” I’m on started the day I confessed Jesus as Lord.
The Origin- “That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9
This confession was one of the most important decisions I ever made. I’d like to honor that decision.
Then there is,
The Journey – “He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.” 1 John 2:6
I must be intentional about the direction I’m going, I want to be associated with my Heavenly Father.
Finally, I want to remember the destination and the Day that will make my best decision all worth it,
The Destination- “Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.” 2 Timothy 4:8
So, if you find yourself wandering aimlessly, remember the best decision you ever made, honor that and walk with the King. Amen!

Think About This: “Radical obedience to Christ is not easy… It’s not comfort, not health, not wealth, and not prosperity in this world. Radical obedience to Christ risks losing all these things. But in the end, such risk finds its reward in Christ. And he is more than enough for us.” ―
