ONE WAY —->

NO MATTER WHERE YOU DRIVE, YOU ARE CERTAIN TO BE EVENTUALLY GREETED BY A ‘ONE WAY’ SIGN. THESE SIGNS GIVE YOU NO OPTIONS AND SEEM TO APPEAR AT EXACTLY THE TIME YOU WANT TO GO OPPOSITE TO THE DIRECTION OF THE SIGN. USED TO CONTROL TRAFFIC, THERE MAY BE CLEAR EVIDENCE OF WHY THE SIGN WAS PLACED BUT THE REASON FOR THE SIGN MAY NOT BE AS EVIDENT AT OTHER TIMES.

LIFE HAS IT’S ‘ONE WAY’ SIGNS AS WELL; POINTING US IN ONE DIRECTION WHEN WE REALLY WANT TO GO OPPOSITE TO WHERE WE ARE BEING DIRECTED. IN ADDITION TO OUR OWN ERRING DESIRES, FAMILY MEMBERS, BOSSES, FRIENDS OR TOTAL STRANGERS MAY POINT US IN A DIRECTION OF THEIR CHOOSING. SO, HOW DO YOU KNOW WHEN A ‘ONE WAY’ SIGN IS REALLY A ‘WRONG WAY’ SIGN? WE HAVE ALL ENCOUNTERED THOSE ABSOLUTE ‘WRONG WAY’ SIGNS AT ONE TIME OR ANOTHER.

INTERESTINGLY, WHILE DRIVING, YOU PROBABLY HAVE NEVER ENCOUNTERED A SIGN READING ‘RIGHT WAY’! IN LIFE, ‘RIGHT WAY’ SIGNS ARE RARE AS WELL.

SO, HOW DO YOU FIND A ‘RIGHT WAY’ SIGN? ONLY ‘ONE WAY’. GOD GAVE US HIS WRITTEN WORD. EACH BOOK OF THE BIBLE CONTAINS MANY ‘ONE WAY’ SIGNS TELLING US OF HOW GOD WANTS US TO LIVE OUR LIVES. BY FOLLOWING GOD’S SIMPLE AND ABSOLUTE STEPPING STONES, YOU WILL FIND THE ‘RIGHT WAY’…GOD’S WAY…AND YOU WILL NEVER HAVE TO WONDER IF YOU ARE LIVING YOUR LIFE THE ‘WRONG WAY’. LOVE GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, FOLLOW HIS INSTRUCTIONS AND GOD WILL KEEP YOU SAFELY IN HIS GRASP. LISTEN TO THAT VOICE INSIDE YOU TO AFFIRM OR TO WARN YOU. THAT UNCOMFORTABLY FEELING COULD BE THE HOLY SPIRIT TELLING YOU ‘NO’.

DO YOU HAVE THE HOLY SPIRIT IN YOU, GUIDING YOU THROUGH THE ‘ONE WAY’ SIGNS OF LIFE? YOU DO…IF YOU ARE A BELIEVER! IF YOU DON’T KNOW THE HOLY SPIRIT, GO TO A QUITE PLACE AND HAVE A CONVERSATION WITH GOD. PRAY, ASKING GOD TO FORGIVE YOU OF YOUR SINS AND TELL HIM CLEARLY THAT YOU WANT A NEW LIFE. ASK GOD FOR HIS HELP. ACCEPT AND KNOW GOD IN THE TRINITY…FATHER, SON AND HOLY SPIRIT.

GOD: THE ‘ONE WAY–>’ TO HEAVEN.

“‘WHY DO YOU ASK ME ABOUT WHAT IS GOOD?’ JESUS REPLIED. ‘THERE IS ONLY ONE WHO IS GOOD. IF YOU WANT TO ENTER LIFE, KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS.'” MATTHEW 19:17 NIV
