Many things have happened in the course of 2020 that have made me realise that though tragic the world needed “a stop and think” break which was availed to us by the stay home period. We had lost our way and needed the break to find it. Our focus was on futility and endless busyness. Things had become more important than people and continously we were going the wrong direction.
When a person loses their way, they stop so they can track where they lost their way. Well, where did we lose our way? What wrong path did we take? I have taken time to trace where we started going down. Tag along.
- Lies – we believe are enough by ourselves, as fact, we believe we are self made!
- Ways – everybody does what they want, we no longer have any form of respect for others and have contempt for any form of authority or legislation that brings order to our now cherished chaos.
- Life – we think that what we live is life, it belongs to us and you only live once
We have to trace back our steps, find the truth, the way and the life.
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”John 14:6 ESV
It might be hard to comprehend but it is very true that Jesus is the way, we need to follow him, be in him. Jesus is the truth, we need to start listening and hearing. Jesus is the life, if the life of Jesus is not in us we are not living at all.
Trace back your steps. Get to the way
