Whose Direction are You Following, and Where Does It Lead?

The ancient Greek playwright, Euripides once said, "The wisest men follow their own direction."  However the Bible says this in Proverbs 14:12 and 16:25, "There is a way which seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death."  Man's own direction for his life always follows the broad path that leads to destruction, for he always goes astray in his heart.

Our gracious and compassionate God has given man His word, His direction, His way, and His path in the Bible.  Hear His word today!  Choose God's path today!  Heed His call today!  Follow His direction today! Forsake your own way and call upon Him while He is near, asking for His direction for your life; and He will have mercy upon you and set you and direct you to the path that leads to eternal life.

That path is centered in Jesus Christ.  Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through Me."  We must follow Christ in order to find the path to eternal life; and to follow Christ we must turn from following our own direction for our life (repent), and believe that the direction to God lies solely in Him.

God's direction will always and ultimately lead to eternal life.  Forsake setting your own direction, and follow His today!
