August 12, 2018 Our Daily Journey Devotional : The Road Less Traveled



Read Scripture :- Romans 14:19


Brian Jackson lives for adventure. For years he’s led expeditions into some of the most extreme environments on the planet. Having trekked thousands of miles across many continents, he loves nothing more than setting foot where no known human has ever been before. In 2014, he and his team made the ascent of a previously unclimbed peak in the Himalayas, setting foot where no human has likely set foot before.
Scripture describes peace as a rare path that, outside of God, no one can find (Romans 3:12,16). Although many frantically pursue the idea of peace, Jesus, the true Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6), is the way to experience real and complete peace (John 14:27). In Him and through Him, we’re made right with God and can live at peace with others (Romans 5:1; Hebrews 12:14).
Through a relationship with Christ, we as believers can come boldly into our Maker’s presence (Hebrews 4:14-16). We can also promote peace, instead of judging or condemning fellow believers (Romans 14:1-9). As Paul reminds us, “Why do you look down on another believer? Remember, we will all stand before the judgement seat of God” (Romans 14:10).
Rather than leading us to criticize others, the path of true peace leads us to “live in such a way that [we] will not cause another believer to stumble and fall” (Romans 14:13). Because the kingdom of God is about “living a life of goodness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit” (Romans 14:17), believers long to “make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification” (Romans 14:18-19 NIV).

The path of true peace may indeed be a road less traveled. But—like the words from Robert Frost’s poem “The Road Not Taken”—it’s the way that makes “all the difference,” now and eternally.
