The Right Path

Do you know what path you are walking? Do you know what door you are looking to walk through? Are you going along with the crowd, following the path that leads to destruction? Or are you following the path that leads to eternal joy?

Whether we like to admit it or not, we all follow someone. Rather than simply following along blindly, we need to look around to see who we are following. The path we are on may not be the right path.

Some may look around and see the professional path they are taking. They may wonder if it is the right profession for them. It is good to discern the best profession for you. Yet, it is less important to follow the correct professional path than it is to follow the correct path that leads to eternal life. This may sound a bit harsh or inconsiderate, but our lives are but moments in time.

Each of us has a limited amount of time to get on the path that leads to eternal life. We do not know either when our own life may come to an end or when Jesus will return to claim His own. We do know that when either of those occur, our time to choose has run out. This is not a doomsday message, but a message to encourage each of us to make the right choice as soon as today.

I pray we all make the choice to follow Jesus. I pray we choose to encourage others to make the same choice. I pray each one of us walks the path that leads to eternal joy. Choose Jesus. Choose the right path. Choose to tell others. Time is limited.

Luke 13:23-25 Someone asked him, “Lord, are only a few people going to be saved?”

He said to them, “Make every effort to enter through the narrow door, because many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able to. Once the owner of the house gets up and closes the door, you will stand outside knocking and pleading, ‘Sir, open the door for us.’

“But he will answer, ‘I don’t know you or where you come from.’”
