I took this picture many years ago of a man walking by himself.
As long, as he stayed on the path he was fine. Ocean on one side and a steep cliff on the other. The ocean can look harmless and very inviting. The cliff on the other side could also be enticing. If your on higher ground you can see more, it may be more fun and exciting. As you see the man is fixed on the path he’s on. It is like our walk with Jesus we can’t look at the world as we once did. We have been reborn made a new. We are just passing through. Heaven is our destination. And Jesus is the Reason!
“Either way, Christ’s love controls us. Since we believe that Christ died for all, we also believe that we have all died to our old life. He died for everyone so that those who receive his new life will no longer live for themselves. Instead, they will live for Christ, who died and was raised for them.”
2 Corinthians 5:14-15 NLT
