Wisdom for the Ages

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.

If ye love me, keep my commandments.
John 14:15

So, we aren't under the law anymore, right? 

Hmm, check it out: What does Jesus say? 

It is the Narrow Way. The path of following the Lord. Seeking Him, Listening to Him. When our hearts are set heavenward to hear the Lord, then we will walk in His ways. In His love. 

Our society declares do what feels right. God says keep my commandments. 

We are not under the law, Jesus came and fulfilled all the law and through Him we are righteous. But only through Him. We can't do enough good to get into heaven on our own. 

But the life and freedom given us because of Jesus' sacrifice does not give a license to sin. There will be consequences. 

Instead, strive for wisdom. Fear of the Lord is the start. Keep His commandments and live for the Lord.

Walk on the narrow way. The Way of Life.
