Julie Ackerman recalls asking, "How did everything get so dirty so fast?" I grumbled as I dusted the glass tabletop. "I had the whole house clean a month ago."

"Cleaning is a way of life, not an event," my husband responded.

I know he’s right, but I hate to admit it. I want to clean the house once and have it stay that way. But dirt doesn’t surrender that easily. Speck by speck, the dust returns. Piece by piece, the clutter piles up.

Being part of God’s "Way" is both an event and a way of life. Jesus is the way of salvation, as He made clear in John 14:6. But commitment to Him demands a way -- a pattern of living -- as He has directed in His Word.
