Gratefully in Christ  - Pr. Jon

Daily Verse

There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death.

Proverbs 14:12

 

Daily Reflection

Jeremiah calls Israel to decision: “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it....”(Jeremiah 6:16) Jeremiah is acknowledging here that there are many paths, but only one good way that will bring “rest for your souls.” Many of these paths, in fact, lead right into “the valley of the shadow of death.” We are always at the crossroads; we need to decide. Do not tarry, for “not to act is to act.”(Dietrich Bonheoffer)

 

Food For Thought

 

"'If you do not believe, you will not be established'; to believe, however, means to decide. And can there be any doubt as to the nature of that decision?...We must shake off our fear of this world-the cause of Christ is at stake, and are we to be found sleeping?"

Dietrich Bonhoeffer quoted in Eric Metaxas' Bonhoeffer page 219
