A born again Christian, having entered the road to Heaven by means of receiving Jesus, as Savior and Lord, has started on the most remarkable trip that anyone could ever make. It truly is the journey of a lifetime. To begin with, he or she does not travel alone. All the way, One goes with us to ensure that we get home safely. There are many hazards to be avoided. However, we have a travel guide, called the Holy Bible, to help us avoid these hazards. If we fail to follow directions, there are instructions on how to get help and undo the damage. There is beautiful scenery, all along the way. This is all pointed out in our guidebook. (For example, the Twenty Third Psalm gives us some beautiful scenery and also prepares us for when we come to the Valley of the Shadow of Death). We are furnished with information on how to avoid road fatigue and how to be rested and refreshed on our usually long journey. We learn to enjoy the whole trip, as we move toward our destination. We are provided with all necessary equipment for a good trip. This too is found in our guidebook, the Bible. We even have a GPS in Scripture to get us back on track, if we make a wrong turn on the way home. Selah! Have you begun the trip? There comes a time when the road can be closed to a person forever, if he stays on the wrong road too long. Ron
