We live and we learn. We learn as we go along. Life is a struggle, it is about the survival of the fittest and sometimes we learn to use wrong tactics to survive to get what we want. Maybe we steal, we cheat, we manipulate other people. We have tantrums, we might develop a violent temper because in that way we achieve our means, we get what we want. But those are the the ways of the world, those are the wrong ways, those are the ways that LEAD TO DESTRUCTION of ourselves and of other people.
Jesus calls us to a BETTER WAY, HIS WAY, His way that will lead to eternal life. Jesus said:“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. 29“Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and YOU WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS. 30“For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30.
Jesus said:”Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all the other things will be added unto you.” Much of what we have learned is WRONG and once we start following Jesus we have to CHANGE, we have to take HIS YOKE upon us. We have to OBEY Him and do things HIS WAY. We have to WALK WITH HIM, LISTEN TO HIM and FOLLOW HIM and then He will teach us HIS WAY, the RIGHT WAY because much of the learning that we have done in the past will only lead to destruction. The learning that leads to LIFE is that which we learn from Jesus Christ HIMSELF and we can only learn that if we WALK WITH HIM, if we LISTEN TO HIM and if we are GUIDED BY HIS HOLY SPIRIT, but we have to UNLEARN the wrong things that we have learned and we have to learn to OBEY JESUS. We have to learn to TRUST HIM and not in ourselves. We have to learn to do things HIS WAY and not our own way, IF we want ETERNAL LIFE, IF we want REST FOR OUR SOULS, PEACE, JOY and UNDERSTANDING. There is only one way to have that PEACE THAT PASSES ALL UNDERSTANDING and that is when we do things Jesus' way, when we OBEY HIM, when we TAKE HIS YOKE on us, when we live UNDER THE DISCIPLINE of the Holy Spirit and we OBEY HIM.
We have to TURN AWAY from our old ways. We have to unlearn that which we have learned in the past, to trust in ourselves, our own wisdom, to listen to the wisdom of other people and we have to LEARN FROM JESUS CHRIST and He will give us PEACE for our souls. We have to SUBMIT to Jesus, obey Him and do things HIS WAY and He will guide us into perfect peace.
May Jesus bless you.
