Jeremiah 6:16 reads as follows, “Thus says the LORD: ‘Stand by the roads, and look, and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is; and walk in it, and find rest for your souls…’”(ESV). Some translations call these ancient paths “the old paths” and that’s where the name comes from. The Old Paths and The Good Way are descriptions of God’s paths… God’s way that he lays out for us in his word, the Bible. And these paths aren’t only meant to be studied, though study can be helpful. They are meant to be walked in. Thus the subtitle: Doctrine for Life.
The title has a pretty broad scope on purpose. Jesus is Lord over everything. My goal, on this blog as in the rest of my life, is to seek to understand his word and apply it in real time to real life.
