"The disciple has entered the narrow way to everlasting life, and he must journey in faith until death closes his eyes in sleep in his Lord, or, should it be so, the Lord himself comes back in the midst of his travelling. The narrow way is well marked with good signposts. The path itself is imprinted with the footsteps of those who also have walked the pilgrim way, including the Lord Jesus Christ, who commanded us to follow him.
The Bible is full of guidance. It tells us about the path, about the snares and pitfalls, about the places of refreshment and about the true companions on the way:
"Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path ..." (Psalm 119:105)
"The commandment is a lamp; and the law is a light." (Proverbs 6:23)
"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not to thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths." (Proverbs 3:5-6)
"Then shalt thou walk in thy way safely, and thy foot shall not stumble. When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet." (Proverbs 3:23-24)
"For the Lord shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken." (Proverbs 3:26)
"Enter not into the path of the wicked, and walk not in the way of evil men. Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it, and pass on." (Proverbs 4:14, R.V.)
"There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death." (Proverbs 16:25)
"The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, shining ever brighter fill the full light of day." (Proverbs 4:18, N.I.V.)
Such counsel is practical and sound. There are things which have be done, and those which must be altogether avoided. Discipleship is a way of life. We must follow the footsteps of the men of Scripture, particularly those of the Lord himself. The Bible is the inspired handbook, the traveller's compass and road map; it provides unfailing, positive and clear advice for everyday living. No man can keep a true course without using the Bible. It is to be read every day."
