Jesus said…. I am the Way….

I don’t know about you, but I hate to be lost.  On top of that, I am “directionally challenged!”  My husband and I used to love to take drives… and he loved to explore.  “I wonder where this road goes,” he’d say… and off we’d go.  I didn’t worry about it, because he was never lost.  Even when he didn’t know where we were, he was never lost!  He would inevitably come to a stop sign or fork in the road and ask me “Which way do I go?”  I didn’t have a clue.  And he’d just grin.

Now you have to understand, I am NOT an adventuress.  If it were up to me, we would not have found California yet!  And, believe me, I am SO THANKFUL for GPS technology.  I really appreciate that I can get directions to places I’ve never been (or forgotten how to get back to) and get turn-by-turn instructions.  And if (or when) I make a wrong turn, the lady in the GPS is not upset.  She is RECALCULATING…..  


Being lost in life is scary.  Being lost in eternity… that is off-the-charts scary!  But how do we even know we are lost?  Do we even know we are on a path to … somewhere?  And who has been there before to even draw a map… or program a GPS?

I remember a story about a driver who was lost – stopping to ask directions from a “local”.  He pulls up to a gas station … or a hole-in-the-wall store … and tries to explain where he needs to go … only to be told “You can’t get there from here.”  Really!?!

I’m so glad Jesus wasn’t like that.  He said “I AM the Way.”  But… the Way to where?  Actually, it is not a way to where… but the Way to WHOM … His Father.  And we cannot get there ourselves!

I’ve heard that many people believe there are many roads to God.  And I think they are absolutely right.  Every road is unique because every road starts right where you are.  Some people start their journey with a feeling of emptiness … looking for something to fill the void deep in their soul.   Some find themselves really searching after some trauma … looking for strength … or answers … or peace.  Still others try one thing after another … thinking they’ve found purpose … only to be disappointed again. 

So, yes.  There are lots of roads.  Most of them going nowhere, except frustration, disillusionment, and despair.  You see, each road must start right where you are, but the destination is of utmost importance.  It is here that all roads have to meet – AT JESUS!  He is the only one who can lead us to Father God… because He is the only one who has been there before.  He came from Father God… and He not only knows how to get back…

So we could go home to His Father, too.

Walking with Jesus

We will never be lost again!
