Dec 30 Devotion: Don’t Hitch your Horse to a New Cart in the New Year! 

Text- II Sam. 6:3- “And they set the ark of God upon a new cart, and brought it out of the house of Abinadab that was in Gibeah: and Uzzah and Ahio, the sons of Abinadab, drave the new cart.”

Too many today are looking for a new approach to religion. People want modern methods to ease their consciences toward God and yet appease their flesh. What they fail to realize is that God isn’t concerned about what one thinks or feels, He is interested in cleansing the soul and presenting it to Himself without blemish. This cannot be accomplished with new ideologies but only with His tried and true truths!

4. Only Way!

John 14:1-6- LET not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Matt. 7:13-14- Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
