Maybe you’re old enough to remember the days of paper maps? Getting to a desired destination required following marked lines on a road atlas. More times than not, you had to add another element to navigating a new area. It’s called the “stop and ask someone how to get somewhere” approach.
Getting anywhere in life requires directions. You need to know the way to the place you want to go. It’s true in the natural aspects of life and the spiritual ones too.
The most important questions you’ll answer in life are about God. How do I get to Him? How can I have a personal relationship with Him? How can I be sure that I will spend eternity with Him? No questions deserve attention more than these.
The Bible gives us clear answers. It provides us unambiguous instructions and directions. Jesus answered these questions for us. Look at three things Jesus said that provide spiritual direction to us:
John 14:6 (NLT) “Jesus told him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.’”
John 3:16 (NLT) “For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.”
John 20:30, 31 (NLT) “The disciples saw Jesus do many other miraculous signs in addition to the ones recorded in this book. But these are written so that you may continue to believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing in him you will have life by the power of his name.”
The directions are clear, the choice to follow them is ours!
