I worked our radio station booth at the Texas State Forest Festival last night and left late. I took one of the volunteers that helped home, since it was pretty much on my way.
He lives around a massive construction area on the north side of Lufkin.
Now I’m familiar with the construction to a certain point. I drive through it twice a day but I don’t deviate from the main route of the loop around Lufkin. To take him home I had to go on the other side of that area into unfamiliar territory.
After dropping him off I exited the same way I had traveled to his home. I was met with a “One Way” sign in the wrong direction. I only knew one thing to do. Turn around and find a different way.
A back road to the loop met with a new road that I had never seen or been on before, also a one way. But it was the right way and I made my way onto a more comfortable and familiar road and then I was homeward bound.
There are many paths and ways to travel in life. The Bible speaks about some wrong ways like the way of Cain (Jude 11) or the way of Balaam (2 Peter 2:15) just to name two.
Traveling those directions would be a wrong way and you should not enter. If you are traveling that direction you need to turn around and find the right way – the only way.
“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6
Jesus is the right way home – and eternal home in the presence of God the Father.
Stop where you are today and ask yourself, “Am I going the right way?” If Jesus isn’t in the equation then the answer is no!
Repent (turn around) and ask forgiveness from Jesus for your life. Now you’re heading the right way!
Abba, help me to be one that would point the Right Way to others. In Jesus name, YES&AMEN
