Did you know that the historic Route 66 is hardly visible these days? If you want to travel this old highway, you must first map out your route using the computer in order to know where to go and how to get there.
In studying the book of Hebrews this year, I’ve become quite familiar with the Old Covenant and the way God used to relate to His people. When Christ came it was as if a new road was built alongside the old road. Although we’re still going in the same direction, now our way is sure! Christ has literally paved the way for us; No more pot holes of the old sacrificial laws. Praise God!
As we travel through the Old Covenant we know that it is pointing ahead to the New Covenant. As Mike Nash so excellently preached this morning – the Old is only a shadow of the great highway to come, the highway of holiness!
So may I encourage you to continue moving forward through God’s Word? You never know when you’re going to hear exactly what you need to hear on any given day. One thing is certain – we know God is going to complete this journey with us.
