Through a glass darkly
There is a place outside of time, outside of this existence. We call this place heaven, though none of us can truly fathom it. There exists there the ultimate good, the Creator, God.

These physical bodies hold our souls. These souls cannot be made perfect by anything we do, no amount of working or trying can cleanse them. Only God Himself could do that. Payment had to be made for what the world is....for the evil we commit. The only way to pay it was for God to live the life we never could, and to sacrifice that life for us. In that moment He was made sin....all the sins were laid upon Him. God took our sin, and offered us life instead of death.

I am no good. I am flesh and bone and a pile of issues, problems.....I cannot change it. I have no capacity to, because evil cannot change evil to good. I surrender myself to Christ, and He takes the sin. He asks the Father to forgive me.

Reach out. Look inside yourself. Be truthful. Accept the free gift. You will finally know real love.

Jesus said, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me" (John 14:6). Notice that Jesus does not say he will show you the way. He says, "I am the way!"

Jesus also spoke of a narrow road and a wide road. Many walk on that wide road, which in the end is the way of death (see Matthew 7:13).

God's peace fills your heart when you walk in the way of Christ. Jesus said to His followers, "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives" (John 14:27). God's peace is a gift available to each of us.

When you walk in the way of Christ, you experience an inner peace--tremendous quiet in your heart. The broken pieces in your life are put together again.

The way of life is also the way of purity. The Bible says, "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God" (Matthew 5:8).

The way of life in Christ is also the way of love. "By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another," Jesus said (John 13:35). The Bible adds, "We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love our brothers" (1 John 3:14).

Today, the word love has been robbed of meaning. It's used to describe a person exploiting the emotions of another for his own satisfaction and selfishness. But that is not love. True love wants the very best for someone no matter what it may cost us.

The way of life is also the way of obedience. The way of the Christian is to serve only one master--Jesus. The Bible describes Him as "Lord of lords and King of kings" (Revelation 17:14). The Christian lives as though this is true. Jesus becomes your Lord, your Master, your King. What He says goes.

The servant of a king waits for the slightest hint of a command, then rushes to obey. A soldier following the leadership of a great commander willingly obeys every order.
