The Only Path
Romans 15:13 (NIV®)
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Who or what do you trust? Where do you look for hope? The people and things you trust are the people and things you hope you can depend on. Some of us trust in our physical strength. Some of us trust in our intellectual capacity or our education. Some of us trust in our willingness to work hard and persevere when the going gets tough. Some of us trust in our family or our financial assets. Religious people often trust in our belief that we’re more right than everybody else. Your eternal destiny is determined by what you trust in, so it’s more than a rhetorical question. And groupthink is not sufficient. It is not enough to say, “I go to church there, so I just believe what they believe. That’s where I place my hope.” The only path to salvation and a relationship with God is to confess that Jesus of Nazareth is Lord of your life and put your trust in Him. Other things may bring a measure of ease and comfort to your days in the earth, but there is no comparison to the joy and peace and hope God will give you when you trust in Him.
THINK ABOUT IT
What do you believe in? Who do you trust? Where do you look for hope?
Heavenly Father, thank You for Your Word. It is a light unto my path. I know there is only one way to God, through Jesus Christ alone. I believe You for salvation and yield my life to You. The world is shaking, and everything in it is unstable. Help me, through Your Holy Spirit, to seek Your joy and peace and hope when I doubt. In Jesus’ name, amen.
