God Calls for Our Best Affections
Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world:he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. John 8:12. All those who are on their way to heaven need a safe guide. Human wisdom is not a safe guide to follow. We are privileged to listen to Christ's voice as we walk through life. They are words of wisdom that we can trust as a safe guide. Satan, with diligence, is working to ruin the our characters. Our only safety is sticking close to Jesus and closely practicing His wisdom and truth.
Christ says that “I am the way, the truth, and the life” John 14:6. The truth of God's word shines on our path showing us the way of life. It says, here is the way, walk in it. In order to know the truth, we must willingly obey God's plans for us and place our affections on Christ rather then the world. If we follow after the world we will walk in darkness and fall.
