The Way of Holiness
"And a highway will be there; it will be called the Way of Holiness" ~Isaiah 35:3
"It is the King's highway, the highway of the King of kings, which He has ordered and appointed, and is common to all His subjects, high and low, rich and poor, stronger or weaker believers, all may walk in this way; it is an old beaten path, which saints in all ages, from the beginning of the world, have walked in; it is the good old way, the more excellent, the most excellent one; all obstructions and impediments are removed, cast in by sin, Satan, the law, and the world; nor is anyone to be stopped and molested in this way, and all in it shall come safe to their journey's end: and it shall be called The way of holiness;" ~John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Jesus cleared this Way for all, "Behold the Lamb of God who comes to take away the sin of the world". Isaiah prophesied this 700 years before Christ came! Notice that he writes, THE Way, not A way. Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to Holiness, to be set apart as a people for the purpose of God. And that purpose is love. We are part of His plan -to show His love to all.
Jesus told His disciple, Thomas, this very thing in John 14:6 "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." And He tells Martha from Bethany, "I am the resurrection and the life. He that believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live." It's all connected. Everything points to Jesus Christ, the King of kings! Travel His highway, the toll has been paid!
Have a blessed day!
