Finding our way

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. Psalm 119:105

Until I became a Christian, I had never read the Bible. The closest I had come was looking through my grandmother’s Bible, but I had never actually read it. Certainly I never thought of it as a book that would have something to say to me. So after I received Christ, someone gave me a Bible in easy-to-understand English and said, “Just start reading.”

I started in one of the Gospels, and as I read the words of Jesus, they jumped off the page and spoke to my life. I thought, This applies to me. Up to that point, I had been following everyone else around, figuratively speaking, even though I didn’t know where they were going. So it was amazing that suddenly I had a map to follow and that I was following God.

So many people today want direction for their lives. Yet God has given us a map, and this map, of course, is the Bible. It tells us how to live. The psalmist said, “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path” (Psalm 119:105). Everything we need to know about living is in the Bible. That’s where we can find our road. Not only that, we can share our map for the road to heaven.

Only God knows the future, and His road is well-lit. So if you are looking for direction, you don’t have to go any further than the Bible, God’s roadmap to life. He will show you how to live. You don’t have to pay anything for it. You don’t have to call any phone numbers. In God’s Word, you can find His counsel and direction for you.

Praying that we all find our map,
Pastor Mike
