Thought from Today's Old Testament Passage:
O Lord, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps [Jeremiah 10:23].
No man can walk aright apart from the revelation of God in His Word. The minute a man turns from the Word of God, he is on a detour. That is our natural course. In fact, we begin that way. I used to take my little grandson for a walk around the block when he was learning to walk. He was a wonderful little fellow, but he wore me out because he wanted to walk up the sidewalk of every house we passed; and when we came to a driveway, he would want to run out in the street, and when we would get to a corner he would want to go the wrong way. I have never seen a little fellow who wanted to go in as many wrong ways as he did. One day when we finally got home, I said to him, "Kim, you're just like your grandfather. When he gets away from the Word of God, he always goes down a detour." My friend, "it is not in man… to direct his steps." We are dependent upon the omniscient God for direction in every area of our lives.

In this series, we will explain why Jesus never intended for anyone to conclude he was just another religious leader, rather, he wanted people to know he was God in human flesh. How do we know Jesus really rose from the dead, and actually appeared to over five hundred people? Can the resurrection appearances be explained away by psychological theories?
