“The way of life is above to the wise, that he may depart from hell beneath.”
There is a reason that the Way of Life comes from above; Wisdom resides there. He is the Father of lights, Who gives us every gift we receive.
“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.”
Jesus Christ told that He came from above, declaring to the world that He is above all.
“He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all.”
“And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world. I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.”
He is the Way of Life, for He is the Way and the Life.
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
When we walk in the Way of Life, we avoid the destruction that awaits those who reject Him.
“The LORD will destroy the house of the proud: but he will establish the border of the widow. The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination to the LORD: but the words of the pure are pleasant words.”
Wisdom comes from the Way of Life, and gives us gifts of peace, gentleness, mercy and so much more.
“But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.”
Ezekiel 17-18 | Mark 5 | Proverbs 19
