Every day you and I face a variety of choices regarding the path we take. Many things influence our decisions for both good and bad, yet God wants us to choose daily to walk according to His ways . Over the next 23 days I will be sharing from the devotional journal, “Walk This Way”, with the prayer that it helps you to grow in your walk with God as you pursue a greater understanding of the path He calls you to.
Here is day nine with an important reminder that walking God’s way will lead you on a path of immortality.
Walk a Path of Immortality
“In the way of righteousness there is life; along that path is immortality.”
Proverbs 12:28 (NIV)
How long do you expect to live? How long would you like to? How much effort do you put into increasing your lifespan? Do you know of people who have been labeled immortal because of the impact of their life on others long after they died? What do you think it takes for a person to leave a godly legacy? Is there a connection between the way you walk in this life and the path to immortality?
The Bible teaches that immortality is found on a path that follows the way of righteousness. In seeking first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, we can be adopted into the eternal family of God! As you pray, ask God to help you examine the ways of your life compared to His righteousness. Pray that you would daily choose a path that leads to immortality as you walk with Christ. Pray that the path you walk would not only lead to eternal life, but that it would leave a legacy that illuminates the path for the generations that will follow you. Pray that the people around you would join you on this path.
