We ask how did we get where we are today, but if we would just open our eyes a minute, we would see how ignorant that question really is. Today we will explore the old path, where the Bible teaches is the good way.

Today we live in a world where people want to listen about Jesus, instead of live for Jesus, a world where we come to church to use and take, instead of give and serve. We live in a world where believers feel they are entitled, instead of indebted. Whatever happened to Living for Jesus?
