Read to Read …Again

Daily Reading:  Numbers   21-22


Numbers 21:22

Let me pass through thy land: we will not turn into the fields, or into the vineyards; we will not drink of the waters of the well: but we will go along by the king's high way, until we be past thy borders.



In back-to-back chapters of our current reading, the term “king’s high way” is used. One was speaking about the highway that belonged to the King of Edom, and the other to the king of the Amorites. These were physical roadways that belonged to the kings of the lands. In the New Testament there is a spiritual way. John the Baptist prepared the way. Paul, Peter, John, and all the other New Testament writers write of the way. Paul even persecuted those of the way. Matthew told us that “narrow is the way.” 


Jesus, in a declarative statement if there ever was one, said: … I am the way…  (John 14:6) To His believers He is the one and only Way. Consider how we commonly use the word way in our language. Each one draws a comparison to the Man, Christ Jesus.


He is the Byway                      Only by Him can we come to the Father

He is the Expressway             Absent from the body, present with the Lord

He is the Parkway                  We never leave Him

He is the Scenicway               His beauty is unsurpassed

He is the One way                  Always up, He and He alone lifts us up

He is the Stairway                  By Him we grow in grace step by step

He is the Runway                   We run our race before Him

He is the Driveway                 He is where we park our faith and trust

He is the Entryway                 Through Him we enter in

He is the Speedway                He will return in the blink of an eye

He is the Giveaway                 Freely received; Freely given

He is the Causeway                For there is no other cause

He is the Stowaway                He lives in our hearts and souls

He is the Takeaway                When it boils down to it, He is the only logical conclusion

He is the Walkway                 We walk in the light of His Word

He is the Roadway                 Fitly joined together and compacted

He is the Gateway                  Always open for all to enter freely

He is the Highway                  For His ways are higher than our ways


And lest we forget… He should never be the Castaway!
