Recently, a drunk, drugged woman caused the fiery deaths of eight people, including herself, on I-95 in New York. She was on the right road, but going in the wrong direction on the right road. Christianity is the path to Heaven, because it is the religion of Christ. However, Christ himself taught that not everyone who says "Lord, Lord, will enter the kingdom of heaven, but those who do the will of My Father in heaven," Matthew 7:21.
God reveals His perfect for us, our beliefs, and when and how we should worship Him -- all through His word. God's word reveals His will. It is therefore instructive that in Matthew 15:9, Christ also charged that while many profess to worship Him, many are actually worshipping Him in vain. Yes, you can worship,and find that your worship is in vain. How can this happen? Jesus said this is so when we replace the commandments of God with the traditions of man.
How do you worship? What do you believe? Have you examined every doctrine and every religious practice with the word of God? Are you absolutely sure that you are going in the right direction on the right road? Does the Bible support your beliefs in:
- Have you accepted that Jesus is the only way to salvation? John 14:6; Eph. 2:8.
- Do you understand that the Lord Jesus is coming again, and that it will not be a secret affair? John 14:1-3; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17; Psalm 50:3-6; Rev. 1:7.
- Do you accept the fact that sin is the transgression of God's law, and that the law was abolished at the cross? 1 John 3:4 (written 95 AD, over 60 years after Calvary); Matthew 5:17; Romans 7:12.
- The Ten Commandments are still binding upon all humanity today, including the Fourth Commandment which requires all to "Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy..." Exodus 20:8-11; Mark 2:27, 28; Luke 4:16; Rev. 1:10.
