A few years ago we were driving through France heading in the direction of Rouen when we realised we were on the wrong road. We continued to drivein the hope of finding a familiar road sign that would direct us back to where we should be. After about an hour, the only thing we were sure about was that we were completely lost. We called into a local filling station to ask directions just as another customer came in; he heard our plight and said “I’m going towards Rouen, just follow me”. He led us back onto the right road and we soon continued our homeward journey.
There is another journey that we are all taking which is far more important than any journey taken on the tarmac. We are all travelling on life’s journey, and every day is just another step along one of only two roads. Some have chosen to travel on the road that has clear signposts directing travellers to a destination that has been specially prepared by God. Others are already travelling on a different road in a different direction with a signpost that points to a dead-end destination.
Did you know that God has already given us full navigational instructions on how to live and how to travel life’s journey. He sent His only son Jesus to tell us all about our lives, and it was He who has given us the clearest signpost to follow when He said “I am the way, the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father except through me”. It is never too late to get directions from the ONE who knows the way, is the way and says “follow me”.
