In this wisdom moment, we uncover what the path of a believer is.
“Stern discipline awaits anyone who leaves the path; the one who hates correction will die.” Proverbs 15:10
What path is the scripture referring to? “Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” Jesus’ teachings are the path that believers are to walk on! The Word of God lets us know where we are on the path and where we are in life. It will light up our path so that we know where we are walking.
When we become believers, we must start on the path of discipleship to learn how to stay on this path and to stay rightly related to Jesus. When the Lord leads us, it is a straight path; it is not complicated.
“Listen, my son, accept what I say, and the years of your life will be many. I instruct you in the way of wisdom and lead you along straight paths. When you walk, your steps will not be hampered; when you run, you will not stumble.” Proverbs 4:10-12
America’s Church has left the path of discipleship, and the Proverbs say the Church will have stern discipline. The Church must turn back to the path and be discipled and learn the ways of Jesus! Discipline is to help to change a person’s ways and discipline from God should lead us to draw closer to Him. Even Jesus had to learn obedience through His sufferings!
“Son though he was, he learned obedience from what he suffered and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him and was designated by God to be high priest in the order of Melchizedek.” Hebrews 5:8-10
When we go through sufferings in life, we become a source for others to come to Christ. Stay on the path! If you have not been discipled, get discipled today! Or you may need help to lead others on the path of discipleship; you can start the journey on the path of discipleship today on Emmaus Road.
