Two Ways: The Way of Death

By on May 17, 2020

Everyone is on the path of death by nature. It is only by turning to Jesus that we begin a new life.

Discussion:  Where have you seen God at work?

Bible references:

  • John 3:14-20
  • Acts 13:38-41
  • Galatians 4:7

Discussion:  Do you prefer to share with others the narrow path of life or the broad path of death?

From the Didache:

And the way of death is this: First of all it is evil and accursed: murders, adultery, lust, fornication, thefts, idolatries, magic arts, witchcrafts, rape, false witness, hypocrisy, double-heartedness, deceit, haughtiness, depravity, self-will, greediness, filthy talking, jealousy, over-confidence, loftiness, boastfulness; persecutors of the good, hating truth, loving a lie, not knowing a reward for righteousness, not cleaving to good nor to righteous judgment, watching not for that which is good, but for that which is evil; from whom meekness and endurance are far, loving vanities, pursuing revenge, not pitying a poor man, not laboring for the afflicted, not knowing Him Who made them, murderers of children, destroyers of the handiwork of God, turning away from him who is in want, afflicting him who is distressed, advocates of the rich, lawless judges of the poor, utter sinners. Be delivered, children, from all these.    See that no one causes you to err from this way of the Teaching, since apart from God it teaches you. For if you are able to bear the entire yoke of the Lord, you will be perfect; but if you are not able to do this, do what you are able. And concerning food, bear what you are able; but against that which is sacrificed to idols be exceedingly careful; for it is the service of dead gods.

Action:  Spend time seeking God to help you deal with problem areas in your life that you may have accepted over the years as just being the way you are.
