Title: born OK the first time
“ For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh), dwell with no good thing: For who Will is present with me; but how to perform that is good I find not. “-Romans 17:18
As I was driving up the road one day a car passed me with his bumper sticker “I was born OK the first time. I wrote it down and began to ponder on the thought. I thought “how foolish “as we see the condition of mankind.
Someone said “if you were born once, you were born into the devils family; if you were born twice, you were born into God‘ s family. “Even if we had no knowledge of God or His word, every human being must know that there is something drastically wrong with our first birth: the inherited genes, certain diseases passed onto each generation, the way we age, weakness that comes with age, loss of I site, loss of hearing, then eventually loss of life. Does it sound like we were “born OK the first time?”
In John chapter 3, there is a religious ruler, Nicodemus, we realize that he was not born OK the first time, when he asked the question “how can I, a man be born when he is old? “ Perhaps as he taught the law, he was plagued with evil thoughts and even felt as the Apostle Paul felt in Romans – 7:19-20. Jesus told Nicodemus “you must be born again, “the first birth is not good enough.
Paul cried “oh wretched man that I am, who shall deliver me from the body of this death? “(verse 24). He was saying “the first birth was not good enough; I have a dying corrupt body that was born in sin. “As pointed out in -Psalm 51:5.
Man is not born OK the first time, the new birth is a must and comes only through Jesus Christ. “But thanks be to God, which gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ “–
I Corinthians 15:7.
Daily devotional from call to glory by Dr. Leon Foote, evangelist, Canaan Baptist Church, Covington Georgia.
We have been doing a lot of reflecting on how the old ways, the more simple ways... what we consider the right ways we’re best for all of us. In today’s devotional we need to reflect on the following…
Living in our busy modern world today, we have not thought of going back to the old horse and buggy days “days of old. But our text says that if we are to find “the rest of your souls “we need to ask “for the old paths, with the good way, and walk there in “ (verse 16 ).
It is called in Psalm 16 the “path of life “and also called a plane path and the word of God gives light to it (Psalm 119:105). This path begins in the garden of Eden where God provided a covering for Adam's Sin, it went through a field where Able offered a blood sacrifice, and Enoch walked this path until God took him. This path led to a battlefield we are shepherd lad slew a giant, and it led to the Red Sea on dry land. Elijah walked this path until a whirlwind took him up to heaven. The writer of the book of Hebrews said that time would fail to tell all of us who that walked this path ( Hebrews 11 ). This old path is not easy, for the easy road (Hebrews 11:6 ). He adds that the world was not worthy of them. These are the ones walking the old path.
The old path lead from Bethlehem His Manger, to Calvary hill where Jesus died for our sins. This path leads to the city that Abraham looked for, a city with streets of gold. It is straight and narrow path that leads to the life (Matthew 7) that is everlasting in a place called heaven. The writer of the book of Hebrew said that time would fail to tell all of us that walk this path (see Hebrews 11 ). This old path has and is not an easy road( Hebrews 11:6). He adds that the world was not worthy of them. These the ones walking the old path.

To get on ti Old Path, take the Roman Road: Romans 3:10, Romans 6:23, Romans 5:8, Romans 10:13. That will put you on the old path that leads to Heaven.
