Direct you’re Mind in the Way
By Robert Schaetzle
Proverbs 23 in verse 19 shares, ‘Hear, my son, and be wise, and direct your mind in the way.’ RSV
One known as Saul of Tarsus was setting out to destroy those new believers in Jesus known as ‘followers of the Way.’
Saul had set out breathing threats of murder against those who received a new spiritual awakening and transformation. Ref. Acts 9:1-2
When we ask for Godly wisdom and purpose in our heart to follow the Way, we who wear the name Christian today, as His followers, will encounter the same threats the early church did the more we take our stand defending the Gospel hope before us.
As we live a transformed life there will be opposition, whether it comes from work ethics, especially family persecution, where some of the strongest opposition can mean death, as in much of the Arab States where Muslim theocracy rules. Within our homes here in America today, there comes a falling away from moral absolutes that were once never considered to be a matter of choice.
Holding fast to the Word that became flesh and dwelt among us will bring boldness to proclaim Him as His followers today.
Direct our mind on the Way, keep Jesus first, most, and foremost who encouraged us when He said; “And blessed is he who does not take offense at Me.” Luke 7:23.Jesus alone proclaimed “I am the way the truth and the life…!” John 14:6
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
