2 Samuel 22:31 
“God’s way is perfect. All the Lord’s promises prove true. He is a shield for all who look to him for protection.” (NLT)

What a God! His road
stretches straight and smooth.
Every GOD-direction is road-tested.
Everyone who runs toward him
Makes it.
(The Message)

Way back in 1971, Billy Graham’s famous slogan was, One Way.

Jesus said, 

“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me,” (John 14:6 NLT).

A new song on the radio said,

Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run
And there’s still time to change the road you’re on*

This song is what counts as wisdom when you are twelve years old. The high school graduates who were teaching the Sunday School lesson that morning certainly thought they were wise. I liked Led Zeppelin, but I wasn’t sure this was actually wisdom. If you read the whole course of lyrics to this song, this couplet begins to sound like someone working hard to make words of poetry rhyme over a long course of verses. 

Be what it may 
they tried to teach us that day, 
there is only one road, 
only one way

See what I mean about trying to make lyrics rhyme? This stimulates a thought: Which is more important? The words or the rhyme? The answer, I suppose, is “It depends.” Do you desire accuracy, or do you want to win friends?

Simple truths are profound. Billy was right. Jesus is the One Way, the only way to know and experience God’s gift of salvation. 

King David tells us a few facts about God’s Way:

1. God’s way is perfect.
2. All of God’s promises come true.
3. God protects all who depend on him. 

Messrs. Page and Plant advise changing roads when you realize you’re on the wrong one. Today is a good day and now is a good time to get started down the One Way that always takes you the Right Way. It is the High Way. And, as Mr. Peterson says in The Message, 

Everyone who runs toward him
Makes it.

This is a good day to run to Jesus.

I will walk the One Way.

Our Father, show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul. Amen.
