“What I am anxious to see in Christian believers is a beautiful paradox. I want to see in them the joy of finding God while at the same time they are blessedly pursuing Him. I want to see in them the great joy of having God yet always wanting Him.” A. W. Tozer

Sermon #7: Make Straight Paths for the Lord

John (the baptist) replied in the words of Isaiah the prophet, "I am the voice of one calling in the desert, 'Make straight the way for the Lord." - John 1:23 (NIV)

Make straight the way for the Lord. This is a personal instruction that each of us needs to take seriously.

Note: it is only through the Word of God that one can make straight the way for the Lord. You should therefore study the Word diligently. You need to learn from others; but be sure to study the Word for yourself and get to confirm whatever you learn from people. 

The Lord wants to work mightily in and through you. Have you made the way straight for Him to be able to do so?

Align yourself to the will of God; that's the only thing that makes people's lives truly valuable in this world.
