The Bible, a Rule Book to follow or a Path to follow to Jesus.
I believe when we really get serious about the Bible we will see it has a path to Christ and it will become evident that it is not a rule book. Rules and laws fail because there is no going back when you break a rule, but it is easy to step back on a path after you’ve stepped off. Rules are static but a path is dynamic, it twists and turns and a path will carry us through any terrain. Not only that but you can’t break a path, if our faith becomes all about rules like it was for the Levite or the Priest in the account of the good Samaritan, you might break the rules in order to be apart of God’s work. If we treat our faith like a journey, God will work His work in us and through us as we walk along on the journey of life.
