Day 9

COG Devotion #9

All roads lead to fixed destinations. At some point we have all found ourselves on the wrong road heading away from where we want to go. When we realize we are off course, a change of direction is necessary. We may have the best of intentions to get somewhere, but if we are on the wrong road we will never arrive at the desired location.

The goal of every Christ follower is to be transformed into His likeness. God wants to  continuously deliver us from sin so that we might be examples of His love and purity. Such transformation is accomplished as we learn to walk upon His path of life. Jesus is our way out of sin, our truth, our life and our only source of goodness. His Word is our roadmap, guiding and directing us. Our power for this journey is the Holy Spirit who lives in every child of God.

Jesus will ensure we arrive safely at our final destination. But we must keep coming to Him in humility, acknowledging our need for Him. He will deliver us from every evil deed, and bring us to His heavenly kingdom, holy and faultless in the Father’s presence. Our part is to come, listen, and receive from Him.

Have you been traveling on the wrong road? By refusing to come to Jesus you will quickly find yourself vulnerable to Satan’s lies and the desires of your corrupt flesh. Jesus died to rescue you from this path which leads to barrenness and death.

Make a u-turn by confessing your sins. God will forgive you and plant your feet firmly upon the path of life.

          “You have made known to me the path of life; You will fill me with joy in Your presence, with eternal pleasures at Your right hand.” Psalm 16:11
