One direction

  1. 1. Direction, not intention, determines one’s destination. Principle of the Path by Andy Stanley
  2. 2. Proverbs 7:6-23 6 Once while I was at the window of my house I looked out through the shutters 7 and saw some foolish, young men. I noticed one of them had no wisdom. 8 He was walking down the street near the corner on the road leading to her house. 9 It was the twilight of the evening; the darkness of the night was just beginning. 10 Then the woman approached him, dressed like a prostitute and planning to trick him.
  3. 3. 11 She was loud and stubborn and never stayed at home. 12 She was always out in the streets or in the city squares, waiting around on the corners of the streets. 13 She grabbed him and kissed him. Without shame she said to him, 14 “I made my fellowship offering and took some of the meat home. Today I have kept my special promises. 15 So I have come out to meet you; I have been looking for you and have found you. 16 I have covered my bed with colored sheets from Egypt.
  4. 4. 17 I have made my bed smell sweet with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon. 18 Come, let’s make love until morning. Let’s enjoy each other’s love. 19 My husband is not home; he has gone on a long trip. 20 He took a lot of money with him and won’t be home for weeks.” 21 By her clever words she made him give in; by her pleasing words she led him into doing wrong. 22 All at once he followed her, like an ox led to the butcher, like a deer caught in a trap 23 and shot through the liver with an arrow. Like a bird caught in a trap, he didn’t know what he did would kill him.
  5. 5. The path you choose determines where you will end up.
  6. 6. 16a This is what the LORD says: “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.” Jeremiah 6:16
  7. 7. 6 Jesus answered, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. The only way to the Father is through me.” John 14:6
  8. 8. Jesus is the Way! Our direction is a person. One direction, one way, JESUS!
