When we talk about a compass today it is almost like a foreign language. In this day and age with GPS and every other tracking  system know to man, a compass seems like something old-fashioned and out-of-date. I like the digital compass on my rearview mirror in my truck. I can at least know which direction I am going in since rumor has it when it comes to figuring out N-S-E-W I just may be a bit directionally-challenged.

Many of you are old enough to remember the old American Express commercial where the tag line was “Don’t leave home without it.” No hiker should even think about going on a hike, especially into the woods, without a compass or some type of directional finder.

Living in today’s  modern world is a ride into uncharted territory for sure! The instability of life will hit us square in the face and get us all turned around if we don’t have a compass. As followers of Christ that can be devastating. My sermon Sunday is about the compass we have to tell us our direction. John tells us we face a battle: “the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life.” Jesus did as well, but we are also told He did not sin. What was His secret? Check out Luke 4:1-12 for the answer. That is the Scripture we will be looking at this week. Thanks, as always, for your prayers.

    Prayers for you and your community as you discuss the compass of our lives. May we never decide we’re too advanced to use it, or feel we are too ‘advanced’ to rely on it!
