Read: Proverbs 16:20-25
There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death. óProverbs 16:25
Think about the worst intellectual matchups possible. For instance, what if we put Albert Einstein in a room with a first-grader to debate the theory of relativity? Or how about George Washington Carver versus a middle-schooler discussing biochemical engineering?
Itís silly to think of putting these pairs together for discussions. One is the ultimate expert; the other would know little if anything about the topic.
Hereís another one: God versus anyone arguing about His plan for mankind. Now weíre talking mismatch! Yet we often hear of people trying to explain away Godís matchless wisdom and how their way is better than His.
I received a letter from a man in prison who said: ďI came to the point in my life where I finally accepted the fact that God is real and the Creator of everything. I grew tired of trying to do things my way. When I started humbling myself and accepting Godís Word, I found the answer.Ē
How ridiculous to reject Godís plan of salvation because we think we know better! Only by placing our trust in Christ for the forgiveness of our sins can we be reconciled to God (John 14:6; Rom 3:23; 6:23). Are you still trying to do things your own way, thinking you know best? (Prov. 16:25). Agree with God and go His way.
There arenít many ways into heaven;
The Bible says thereís only one:
Confessing Christ Jesus as Savior,
Believing in Godís only Son. óSper
Jesus is not one of many ways to approach God, nor is He the best of several ways; He is the only way. óTozer
