“If you walk in My ways, keeping My statutes and commandments…” (1 Kings 3:14).
The life of faith isn’t a blind pursuit but, rather, it is an informed obedience. Our Lord does not call us to follow after him and then leave us to our own intuition and “gut feelings” as to how we ought to live. Such subjectivity would produce only subjective results. Thankfully, we are given the word of God as an objective standard. Much like a road map or playbook it offers clear instruction; directing the course of our lives and the strategies that best accomplish the purposes of God.
