Highway to Heaven

I was at my nephews confirmation recently and the bishop had a very interesting story that he told. It really reminded me of a story that i wrote which was true in real life. My experience was that i was lost in the woods, i didn't know where i was. I was starting to get nervous and afraid becuase i knew nothing about survival. I asked God to lead me and to my surprise i saw a giant white cross that led me back to the Christian Church Camp.

This is in my words the story that he said.

Four guy were taking a hike in the woods, they started to become unfamiliar with the territory. They realised too late they were lost. Each of them started to ask the other, "Do you have a Compass?" and the other said no. Eventually they all realized they forgot to bring the most important thing with them which would lead them home.

They were starting to become frightened as neither of them were much of a suvivalist. They were trying to figure out what was the best way back. Everything looked the same, they were not high enough to see the hills so they couldn't tell.

Each one claimed that a certain way was North. They argued with each other and claimed their way was the true way. They all decided to go a seperate path and find the way home. In reality only one would find their way home, what will happen to the rest.

If you really think about it so many are going to take that road that leads to darkness and do you want to miss that oportunity. Jesus is the Compass in life, if you don't have Jesus then you will not find your way to the Highway to Heaven.

You can go without Jesus, but you will lose your way and then it will be a lonely and depressing life you live, never will you find happiness like you will with Jesus. Each day will be a struggle and you will continue to fall until you accept Christ.

It was a wake up call for me that night as i knew that even i was not living my life the way i should. I was hiding things from my family, i was not living a Godly life and once again i was falling. I had to seriouly think about it, do i want to turn away and not receive the blessings that the Lord has to offer, or do i want to accept Christ and let God work in my life.

Even if you don't know Jesus today, it's never too late. Accept Jesus today and talk to him everyday, don't wait until it's too late. I almost did!
