Your Eternal Destination

Today's Scripture

“Show me your ways, O Lord, teach me your paths” - (Psalm 25:4).

Thoughts for Today

If you are like most people, you do not board an airplane or train without knowing where it is headed. When you get in your car, you have a good idea of where you are going. Are you as aware of your eternal destination? Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth, and the Life (John 14:6). There is no other way to heaven.

You may be a person who is looking for God, yet you are looking in all the wrong places. There is an anonymous poem about a man who carried a bundle.

He carried a bundle of false beliefs,
Musty and heavy as lawyer’s briefs;
Prejudice, jealousy, bitterness, strife—
These were the wares of his troubled life.
He carried the bundle wherever he went—
Anger, suspicion, and selfish intent;
He saw what he sought, injustice and sin.
Life was a tempest without and within.
He mumbled and stumbled;
The world was all wrong,
His bundle grew heavy as he shuffled along.
Worry, impatience, discord, and doubt—
These were the things
He dragged all about.
Tired of his bundle, he set the load down,
He prayed long to God; his face lost its frown.
In his eyes dawned a light by which he could see.
He forsook his old bundle and walked away free.

The harder you try in your own strength, the further you are from God. He doesn’t move away; you do. He is waiting for you. Jesus said, “I am the way” (John 14:6). Try any other way, and you will be completely lost. Come to Jesus today. He will lead you to Truth and to eternal life with Him.

Prayer: "Our Loving Heavenly Father, I come to You and I set my bundle down today. Thank You for Your finished work on the Cross and the forgiveness of my sins. I repent and turn to You for eternal life today. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."
Have a Blessed Monday and God Bless you.
