Series: Luis Palau | The Way of Life

Luis Palau talks about “the way of life” this week on “Reaching your World.”  In Psalm 16 David mentions the way of life, and later Jesus Himself tells us that He is the way and the life. Jesus can give us a wonderful life filled with peace, purity, love, and so much more. 

Finding God - the True Rest we Need Friday, January 15, 2021

Do you ever feel that God feels very distant? What is recorded in the Bible happened thousands of years ago and sometimes can feel so unrelated to how we live now. But while God is reigning in Heaven, He’s still watching over the whole world, and He is present in our hearts and is alive in our world today by the power of the Holy Spirit.

God wants you to know Him. He loves you, and He wants you to have peace, wholeness, and a sense of purpose and belonging. Jesus was speaking directly to you when He said, “Come to me, all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” You can read that in Matthew 11:28 in the Bible.

An early church leader known as Saint Augustine prayed these words: “Oh Lord. . . our hearts are restless until they rest in you.” Many of us can say that today too.

Jesus longs for you to come to Him and find rest. Jesus knows that you are tired of the sin in the world and tired of your own guilt, and He offers you rest and freedom from those things. Follow Jesus, come to Him, and you’ll find true peace today and every day.

Obedience Thursday, January 14, 2021

The way of life in Jesus Christ is first the way of peace, second of purity, and third of love. Not only that, but the way of life in Jesus is also the way of obedience.

The way of the Christian is to serve only one master-- Jesus. The Bible describes Him as "Lord of lords and King of kings" [Revelation 17:14]. When you become a Christian, Jesus becomes your Lord, your Master, your King. What He says goes. The servant of a king waits for the slightest hint of a command and rushes to obey. A soldier following the leadership of a great commander willingly obeys every order.

Similarly, a Christian gives God complete authority over their life. We will go wherever He wants us to go, and do whatever He wants us to do. And we do not care what it may cost us in terms of our comfort or reputation.
And Jesus has every right to rule like that. Jesus is our Lord and King because He made us, He gave His life for us and our sins, and He always does what is best for us.

Love Wednesday, January 13, 2021

Did you know the Bible says a Christian is someone who walks in the way of life in Jesus Christ? First, it’s the way of peace. Second, it’s the way of purity.
Third, the way of life is the way of love. Jesus Himself said, "All men will know that you are my disciples if you love one another," John 13:35. The Bible adds, "We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love our brothers and sisters," 1 John 3:14.

In our culture, the word "love" has been robbed of its meaning. It’s used to describe a person exploiting the emotions of another for their own satisfaction and selfishness. But that is not love.

True love involves wanting the very best for someone no matter what it may cost us. It’s the kind of love that Jesus demonstrated by being nailed to a Roman cross--and then dying for us and for our sins. What amazing love, mercy, and grace!

Purity Tuesday, January 12, 2021

The Bible tells us that a Christian is someone who walks in the way of life. Did you know that? And that way is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, John 14:6.
You may ask, "What kind of a way is this ‘way of life’?"

First, it is the way of peace.

Second, it is the way of purity. The Bible says, "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God," Matthew 5:8.

You may be a "nice" person. But if you are fooling around with sin; if you are playing with immorality; if you are not being truthful in your business; if you are dishonest in your school, in your work, in your play, in your family life, then you are not living the life that Jesus wants for you. Real life. Exciting life.
When you come to Jesus Christ, He forgives your sins and purifies your heart. That doesn’t mean you become proud. On the contrary, you become more conscious of your shortcomings. But God gives you His own power to live a righteous life.

Today, receive God’s power to live a righteous life. Why wait? Go to our website, hopewithgod.com.

Peace Monday, January 11, 2021

Did you know the Bible says a Christian is someone who walks in the way of life? And that way is Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Jesus Himself said, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me," John 14:6. You may wonder, "What kind of way is this ‘way of life’?"
First, it is the way of peace. God’s peace fills your heart when you walk in the way of Jesus Christ. Jesus said to His followers, "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives," John 14:27. God’s peace is a gift available to each of us.

When you walk in the way of Jesus Christ, you experience an inner peace--a tremendous quiet in your heart. The broken pieces in your life are put together again. Oh, a doctor can advise you. A counselor can pinpoint some of the problems in your past. But only God can give you lasting peace.
Learn how God can give you lasting peace. You can receive it this very hour. So why wait? I invite you to go to our website, hopewithgod.com.
