July 23 – Foolish Philosophy

The personal creed of a famous movie is actor stated in his own words. “I’m going to do as I please. I don’t need anybody …. I did it all myself.” Sounds like he thinks he does not even need God. Such thinking leads some to consider themselves self-made and end up worshipping their supposed creator themselves. But when this philosophy includes the Lord Jesus Christ, it becomes much more serious. Because to leave Him out of our lives is to court spiritual disaster. One New Testament writer was inspired to write about eternal life as follows: “this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life… he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.” And Jesus Himself said, “ I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” If we hope to make it into heaven someday, Jesus, because He died for us, is our only way.
