Hi, God’s word for me today is in Jeremiah 21:8 which says, “Furthermore, tell the people, ‘This is what the Lord says: See, I am setting before you the way of life and the way of death.”
Which one would you pick? Life or death? Of course the smart person would pick life but because we all sin none of us are “smart people”, and so were the Israelites, and the way of life for them was to repent of their sins and to trust in the Lord. Also they had to offer sacrifices to only God and they could either pick idolatry or God. For us it is almost the same thing, we have to repent of our sins and trust in the Lord, but we don’t have to continually offer sacrifices. We have a ultimate sacrifice, one that atoned for our sins and for the sins of the whole world, the true way of life. Jesus! Jesus died for our sins so we don’t have to keep offering sacrifices.
Jesus took God’s wrath on us and He gave us life He is the true way of life, ”
Jesus said to him,
“I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. (NIV John 14:6)
Jesus took the way of death for us gave us life, because He died for us we can live and He took the wrath of God on Him wo that we wouldn’t have to. Jesus is the way the truth and the life and, like this verse says, no one comes to the father (God) except through Jesus. Come to the true way, truth and life, Jesus is our savior and we need to trust in Him. God moves through us to trust in Jesus, and Jesus is the way to the father.
Jesus is our atoning sacrifice, “
He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world. (ESV 1 John 2:2)
Are you trusting in the true way and truth and life?
Grace and truth, Charity Cleveland.
