ARE YOU HITCHHIKING?

WE HAVE ALL SEEN HITCHHIKERS WITH THEIR THUMBS UP WALKING ON OUR HIGHWAYS WITH HAND SCRAWLED SIGNS STATING: DALLAS, DENVER, SAN DIEGO, MEMPHIS, BOSTON OR SOME OTHER FAR AWAY PLACE. THESE STRANGERS ARE RELYING UPON OTHERS TO GET THEM TO SOME DESTINATION. SOME WILL WALK A GREAT DEAL OF THE WAY, WHILE SOME WILL HAVE A STRANGERS STOP AND OFFER THEM A RIDE ALONG THEIR ROUTE.

HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A PERSON WALKING WITH A SIGN THAT READS ‘HEAVEN’? NO? MOST OF THE PEOPLE OF THIS WORLD CARRY THIS INVISIBLE SIGN. THEY WANT TO GET TO HEAVEN AND FULLY EXPECT TO SEE THE GATES OF HEAVEN, BUT THEY DON’T KNOW THE WAY AND THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOT ONE PERSON ON THIS EARTH WHO CAN DIRECT THEM OR TAKE THEM TO HEAVEN.

HOW ABOUT YOU? DO KNOW THE WAY TO HEAVEN? DO YOU NEED SOMEONE TO SHOW YOU THE WAY…TO GIVE YOU A MAP? GOD HAS ALREADY
GIVEN YOU A ROAD MAP. IT IS CALLED HIS BIBLE. AND YES, GOD HAS GIVEN YOU THAT PERSON WHO WILL PICK YOU UP AND GIVE YOU A RIDE TO HEAVEN. HIS NAME IS JESUS. ARE YOU STRUGGLING WITH LIFE AND STILL REFUSING HIS RIDE? IT IS NOT TOO LATE. ASK HIM TO BE YOUR SAVIOR. JESUS WILL….IF YOU ASK!

JESUS CAME AND DIED FOR YOUR SINS. YES, ALL YOUR SINS, NOT JUST SOME OF THEM. ALL OF THEM. ISN’T IT TIME YOU TAKE JESUS UP ON HIS OFFER OF A GLORIOUS RIDE? GOD NEVER PROMISED US A PERFECT LIFE. GOD PROMISED US HIS PERFECT SON TO LOVE US, SUPPORT US WHEN WE ARE DOWN AND TO TAKE OUR SINS AWAY, GIVING US THE SALVATION OF ETERNAL LIFE.

ARE YOU HITCHHIKING TO HEAVEN? PUT YOUR HITCHHIKING SIGN AWAY. YOU DON’T NEED A SIGN. ALL YOU NEED JESUS.

“AND IF I GO AND PREPARE A PLACE FOR YOU, I WILL COME BACK AND TAKE YOU TO BE WITH ME THAT YOU ALSO MAY BE WHERE I AM.” JOHN 14:3 NIV
