The theme of this sermon is related to how we get from A to B. What is the quickest way – in a straight line of course!
From the Westminister Shorter Catechism
Question – What is the chief aim of man? Answer – To glorify God and enjoy him forever.
1. Excellency of a straight path – because God is excellent, the path is excellent
John 14:6, Romans 11:36, 1 Chronicles 17:20, Exodus 15:11, Psalm 89:6
2. The trouble of a straight path (what we worship) – because of our sin, the path is difficult (our aim is God but we don’t always head in that direction)
1 Corinthians 10:1-13, Isaiah 29:13, Psalm 34:8
3. The hope of a straight path – because of Jesus, there is hope for a straight path (Jesus walked for 3 years with his disciples knowing fully that his path led to the cross and death but he never deviated)
Mark 1:2, Hebrews 12:2, Proverbs 3:5-6
