“Then three years later I went up to Jerusalem to become acquainted with Cephas, and stayed with him fifteen days.  But I did not see any other of the apostles except James, the Lord’s brother” (Galatians 1:18-19).

The modern world looks at things and thinks all of this is made up.  Paul was out preaching the same message as Peter whom he never met.  Look at the simple statement and see that the same Lord is guiding all who are walking in the truth of the Gospel.  Be led not by what you hear in this world, but by the truth which has been spoken once for all through the Gospel of our Lord.

Lord, You have come to lead the way for all who hear Your voice and follow You.  Come, Lord Jesus, and lead me in the way of truth that I may now and always be guided by what You have revealed.  Let me not be carried away by the insanity of this world, but be guided, as You guided those of old, by the one truth You have revealed by grace that I may live through faith unto life eternal.

Lord Jesus, You reveal to those who listen the truth that was spoken first through the prophets and then through You.  Lead me in the truth of this and every age that I may walk in the newness of life that You alone give.  Help me filter out the voices that are contrary and open my ears to Your Word of truth.  Through all things may I be guided by You into life eternal.  Amen.
