There is a right way and a wrong way to do pretty much everything. Look around with your own eyes; look at others; watch the daily news. I bet you have a few scars that remind you of doing things the wrong way. But what is the real danger? What is the right way? What is really important?
The real danger in this life that we live is that we live it “OUTSIDE” of the counsel and confines of the Lord Jesus Christ; we do it our way instead of His way! Again, the danger that we bring ourselves into is when we begin to think that we can make decisions and do things “VOID” of the guidance of God. Why do we do this? Because there is a way that seems right to us!
Proverbs 14:12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
Proverbs 16:25 There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. [Second time for emphasis].
Isaiah 55:8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
If the ways of a man lead to death, which is the right way? See the following verses.
Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
Proverbs 3:6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. [Jesus Christ and His ways are the right ways; the only ways]!
Do it the way of man and you get eternal death. Do it His way, you gain eternal life. Plain as day!
Study the Bible and learn the right way; trust Him. Don't rely on your own understanding.
