Do You Know the Way?

Often when I am traveling to a specific location and I have never been there I have to ask directions.  I seek proper directions to ensure that I will not get lost along the way.  I seek directions to ensure that I arrive at the correct location.  I seek directions to ensure that I arrive on time.

When I seek directions I seek someone who has been to where I am going.  When I seek directions I seek someone who is famaliar with the location.   When I seek directions I seek someone who prehaps lives in the area.

Many times the Bible describes us as pilgrams and strangers as we live our lives on this earth.  As strangers we are seeking the way back home and God has provided the directions for us.

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me (John 14:6).

Even though Christ has provided the only true directions to Heaven, they are to no avail if we fail to follow them.  The only way to Heaven is through Christ, by Christ and with Christ there is no other way.  Let each of us purpose in our hearts to follow the directions as given by Christ.
