Our reading in the Old Testament today is one of my favorites.
“And a HIGHWAY will be there; it will be called the WAY of Holiness; it will be for those who walk on that WAY. The unclean will not journey on it; wicked fools will not go about on it. 9 No lion will be there, nor any ravenous beast; they will not be found there. But only the redeemed will walk there, 10 and those the Lord has rescued will return. They will enter Zion with singing; everlasting joy will crown their heads, Gladness and joy will overtake them, and sorrow and sighing will flee away.”
As a member of the Body of Christ you are privileged to travel on this highway called “The Way”. The believers in the book of Acts referred to themselves as followers of The Way!
Presumably they were borrowing from Jesus’ I Am statement in John 14:6.
6 Jesus said to him, “I am THE WAY and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
Here it is described in our New Testament reading for today.
“Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.”
This is the Spiritual Highway we get to travel on. Better than any Express Lane in the metroplex. And it won’t cost you a toll fee!
