What road are you on?

The other day I was driving on a two lane road when suddenly, I saw, in my rear view mirror, a driver speeding up attempting to advance to the front of the lane during the morning rush hour.  He completely ignored the traffic merging sign warning him that the two lane road was merging to a one lane road; he almost collided with another vehicle.  Fortunately, for him, no one was hurt.  This led me to think about the road we are on.  I had asked myself these questions: 

How is your daily road? Is it chaotic, adventurous, frustrating, etc?  Where are you running to?  Is your road a designated road?  Are you focused on the road to success?  Are there other routes or alternatives to that path?  1 Corinthians 9:24 Paul states,” You know that many runners enter a race, and only one of them wins the prize.  So run to win!”
There are many people who are spiritually deprived. They anxiously and desperately race to their destinations without having the slightest idea that there is one way to God’s road.  Isaiah 35:8 says, A good road will be there, and it will be named “God’s Sacred Highway.”  It will be for God’s people; no one unfit to worship God will walk on that road.  People today are confused and stumble because they are focused on the things of this world not knowing that this world is on God’s timer. 

We all want to be on God’s road to success.  However, some of us choose other routes or alternatives to get there.  But God says no, it has to be his designated road.  What does it mean to be on God’s Sacred Road, well in John 14 Jesus says, “I am the way, the truth, and the life!  Without me, no one can go to the Father."  Romans 10:9-10 Paul says, “If you declare with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.  For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved." 
He is the only road to the Father all other routes are nothing but distractions in our lives.  Focus on the Lord, John 15:4 says, If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.

In the final analysis, God’s Sacred Road is accepting Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior.  Amen!
