Jeremiah 6:16 Thus says the Lord, “Stand by the ways and see and ask for the ancient paths, Where the good way is, and walk in it; And you will find rest for your souls. But they said, ‘We will not walk in it.’

            The path of following Jesus has often been characterized as “the upward way”. There are also other comparatives to be considered, such as “the narrow gate” “going down to Egypt”, and many other thoughts which express the idea of choosing whether to follow after Jesus in His march to the cross, or whether to follow after the world and take the apparently less costly path.

            We live in a world of restless souls and angry disappointed people who do everything they can to either just survive, or to drag others down to their level of personal degradation. The prophet Jeremiah was given a terrible and demeaning assignment by God and suffered greatly at the hands of the people all around him. Read this short book of his work and life before God and you might just get an idea of what I’m talking about. Remember, all Scripture has a context, and that context is extremely important to our understanding of the more “popular” or comforting verses.

            Every day we are faced with choices. Every day we have opportunities to follow in the footsteps of Jesus. What we do with those choices and opportunities is completely up to you. Whether you “succeed or fail” the key to everything is obedience. That is all that matters.

            Go ahead, take a chance.
