Ancient Paths

Jeremiah 6:16  "This is what the Lord says:  'Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.'"

Abraham, Noah, Moses, Jesus, Peter, James, John, Tabitha, Lydia, Eunice, Lois, St. Augustine, John Knox, Wycliffe, Tyndale, Martin Luther, the Puritans, George Whitfield, W. A. Criswell, Martin Lloyd-Jones, Michael Horton, Elizabeth Elliot, Kevin DeYoung.  What do all these people have in common?  They all walked on the ancient paths of God.  Like them, we must also stay with the ancient paths.  We will find rest for our souls as we are imitators of the faithful men and women who've gone before us.  Many today want instead to be innovators; that is not a good way, not a way wherein we will find rest for our souls.  As Christians, we have a great and Godly heritage that spans the ages, and we must not stray from those ancient, established paths.
