Man's way vs. God's way" > Man's way vs. God's way" /> Man's way vs. God's way" />

God's Way:

  • It is finished!             Jn 19:30
  • Peace be unto you!  Jn 20:19
  • Lovest thou me?      Jn 21:15
  • Follow me!               Jn 21:19

Man's Way:

  • Seek to follow Him
  • Try to love Him,
  • and hope to get Peace
  • when all is finished.

God's way is shown in the order the verses appear in John's gospel. First is the Finished work of Christ on the cross and empty tomb. The believer rests in that finished work by believing the gospel, and has Peace with God. Then Love comes for the Savior, and then Following Him.

Man's way in religion starts in the reverse order and seeking peace never finds it.
