Faith walk: How to reach your destination

Posted

A man who was travelling in an unfamiliar area realized that he was lost. He stopped to ask directions of a man who looked like he might be familiar with the territory.

He told the man his destination and asked if he could give him directions to get there. Trying to help the traveler, the man said, “Well … if you go to the next crossroads and turn right … no, no, you need to drive straight down the road until you get to the gas station … oh, wait, that’s not it … here’s what you do … turn around and go back the way you came until you see a big oak grove, then you turn … oh wait, that won’t do it … hmmm, let me think a minute.”

He pondered, scratched his head, looked perplexed and then said, “Stranger, I don’t think you can get to where you’re going from here.”

How do you get to a desired destination when you don’t know where you are?

That depends more on your destination than your present location.

When Jesus was preparing His disciples for His death and physical departure from this world, He said to them, “I am going there to prepare a place for you. You know the way to the place where I am going.”

A disciple answered Him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?”

Jesus gave His classic answer, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

The way to the Father … to Heaven … to eternal life … is a person. You can meet that person wherever you are right now! He is the Way to where you want to go.

It is not that Jesus knows the way or can tell you the way. Jesus is the Way!
