The Old Paths

on March 4, 2012

“Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.”  Jeremiah 6:16

It seems like in the days we’re living in churches are looking for different ways to worship.  They might try to do new things in order to fit the changing times or to draw in a new crowd.  Although there are different ways to worship God, the attitude of your heart is what truly matters… not what will attract a crowd.

God tells us in Jeremiah 6:16 to ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein.  Although the times are changing, God never changes.  His character and the message of Jesus Christ are the same.  Hebrews 13:8 tells us that He is “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and for ever.”  No matter how quickly the world is changing, we can have confidence that our God and our Savior will not change.

Today I challenge you to ask for the old paths.  Don’t be ashamed to consider yourself an old-fashioned Christian, rather glory in the fact that by walking in the old paths you’ll find rest for your soul.  Don’t be swept away by changing ideas and doctrine, but stand ye in the way.  God isn’t going to change with the times.

“That the Lord thy God may shew us the way wherein we may walk, and the thing that we may do.”  Jeremiah 42:3
