They say that one problem men have is that they just won’t stop and ask directions! While that used to be true of me, I’ve gotten older and (in this way at least) wiser and now don’t hesitate to ask if I’m on the right road. How about you? Today’s devotional shows us how we can know whether or not we’re on the right road spiritually. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
Hebrews 12:14 (ESV)
14 Strive for peace with everyone, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord.
“…Without sanctification there is no salvation…. Then what an enormous amount of so-called religion there is which is perfectly useless! What an immense proportion of church-goers and chapel-goers are in the broad road that leadeth to destruction! The thought is awful, crushing, and overwhelming. Oh, that preachers and teachers would open their eyes and realize the condition of souls around them! Oh that men could be persuaded to ‘flee from the wrath to come’! If unsanctified souls can be saved and go to heaven, the Bible is not true. Yet the Bible is true and cannot lie! What must the end be!” [J. C. Ryle, Holiness: Its Nature, Hindrances, Difficulties, and Roots, (London: James Clarke & Co., Ltd., 1879), p. 31]
