It may not be hip, but God’s ways are eternal | Church Corner

ots of people are. They love new stuff just because it’s new, which is a fine policy if you’re looking for a house or a car but isn’t wise if you’re looking for directions. Or wisdom.

Are you terminally hip?

Lots of people are.  They love new stuff just because it’s new, which is a fine policy if you’re looking for a house or a car but isn’t wise if you’re looking for directions.  Or wisdom.

You see, God’s ways are eternal. They do not change.  The great mistake of many believers is that they keep looking for a new or different Jesus. That’s silly.  It’s the road to confusion.

The Bible says, “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls” (Jeremiah 6:16). In other words – seek the stuff that has stood the test of time.

For example, there’s no substitute for prayer. There’s no alternative to worship. Servanthood never goes out of style. Self-sacrifice is always “in.” Love for one another is as constant an expectation as gravity. And learning God’s Word is not optional, if you want to experience Him.

C.S. Lewis tells about a pilot who said, “I’ve felt God in the stars, and walking on the beach at night. He’s much greater than all your theology.”

Well, yes, the pilot’s reasoning is fine so long as you’re content with walks on the beach and staring out the window.  But what if you want to cross the ocean or navigate the stars?  What if you want you want to grow? What if you want to get to know your maker as a friend?  Then you’re going to need something more than a warm fuzzy. Then you’re going to need to “ask for the ancient paths” and “ask where the good way is” and then “walk in it.”

Maybe it’s time you got a little more serious about your faith. You will not be different until you do. I’ll see you on Sunday.

Be true!
