My Way

In Perspective on July 11, 2011 by The Spillover

For what is a man, what has he got?
If not himself, than he has naught
To say the things he truly feels and not the words of one who kneels
The record shows I took the blows and did it my way!
-Frank Sinatra

Don’t these lyrics epitomize the human condition, even among many Christian circles in America?

I want God, I want heaven, I want Jesus, but I want them MY WAY! Everyone has their own way. And they’re all ways that lead to destruction.

Jesus says:

Make every effort to enter through the narrow door, because many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able to. -Luke 13:24

The stakes are too high for us to gamble on our own preferences. The LORD is the one who knows everything, and in His grace, revealed the true Way to us in the Bible.

Let us make every effort to forget our way and strive toward His way alone.
