Here’s A Cut-Through

Luke 1:78-79
“…because of the tender mercy of our God,
whereby the Sunrise shall visit us from on high
to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death,
to guide our feet into the Way of peace.”

John 14:6
“I Am the Way…”

There’s a story, often credited to E. Stanley Jones, about a missionary who gets lost in the jungle. He comes upon a village in the middle of the trees, and asks a resident to lead him out. The local agrees, and for an hour he walks ahead of the missionary, clearing a way through the foliage with a machete.

Eventually the missionary asks, “Are you sure we are going the right way? Isn’t there a path somewhere?” The villager smiles. “Friend, I am the path.”

There is a way, we are told, that seems right…but is always a dead end.*

Don’t walk in the treacherous realm of “seems” today. Everyone is looking for a short-cut when life’s greatest quest can only be encountered as a cut-through. Find Him who is the sure path, and you will walk on the heights.
