“These are springs without water and mists driven by a storm, for whom the black darkness has been reserved” (2 Peter 2:17).
What purpose is a river bed with no water? What point is there to speak with no sound? Why live if there is no life? The contradictions of this age abound. People wander like ghosts and think with minds that are in a fog. Do not be led astray by the unthinking of this age but by the One who created you. You have been called through His grace into a new life filled with living water.
It is so easy to fall into the pattern of the world. Unthinking, but acting as if what is said has been thought out. Reacting, but thinking that what I am doing is a unique response. Help me, Lord, and keep me from plodding down the wide road that leads to destruction. Lead me to walk the narrow path that You have set before me. Guide me in Your goodness to know that in You alone is there hope and true life.
Lord Jesus, You have told us all we need to know. You have called to us from the cross and for as many as hear Your voice and follow You, You have promised to conform us to Your image. Help me, dear Lord, to see that in You is all hope. Guide me in Your goodness to follow the way You have set before me. Lead me in the truth in order that I may humbly walk with You, my Savior. Amen.
