If you are not following Jesus, you are on the road to destruction that leads straight to Hell. The bible says Jesus is the way, the truth and the light and no one gets to the Father except through him. I believe there are only 2 roads you can take in this life. The road that follows Jesus and leads to everlasting life in Heaven or the road of the world that leads straight to Hell. The bible says the road to destruction is broad and many are on it but the way to righteousness is narrow and few find it.
I believe people try to make a 3rd road that runs right down the middle of the other 2 roads. They don’t want to commit and live 100% for Jesus but they consider themselves good people so they don’t want to walk totally on the path to destruction, so they try to stay in the middle. This is not biblical, there is no 3rd road. You are being deceived by Satan himself if you believe you can walk a little on both roads. I believe these roads are so far apart there is no middle ground and if you try this, you will come to a fork in the road. Which one will you take?
The path to destruction is the easy path. You can do what you want and when you want. If it feels good do it, that is their motto. Unfortunately, this road is packed with people on cruise control so you will be able to go with the flow, follow the crowd, be accepted by the majority. You can pick the commandments that you follow and pick your morals so you don’t have to feel guilty for anything. I believe there are caution lights flashing and detour signs all along this road that lead to the path of righteousness but they are being ignored. These signs and lights are being ignored because people say I am having fun, I have plenty of time to change my ways, or they think those signs are for everyone else, because I am a Christian.
The sad part is I believe some people truly believe they can be a Christian and stay on this road. They believe they can be a Christian and live the same life they were living before. I believe these people have convinced themselves of this through watered down religion and when they stand before God they will be shocked when he says “Depart from Me, I never knew you.” Religion will not get you to heaven only Jesus Christ will get you to heaven. I don’t care how many sinner’s prayers you have said if your life has not changed, you need to check yourself. I do not believe you can be truly saved and remain the same person. The bible says you are transformed and I believe this starts immediately and continues throughout your life on earth. I do not believe if the Holy Spirit is inside of you that you can continue to live in sin. The Holy Spirit is not going to live in the same space as Satan.
The path to righteousness is narrow and few will find it. This is a scary thought when you think about your family and friends. This is not the popular path so it will not be crowded. You will not be accepted by the masses because your conviction from the Holy Spirit will not let you go along with the crowds. You will live by the commandments and have the moral compass set by the bible. This road will not always be easy, you may be shunned or made fun of. People will say you are a fanatic or radical when you choose to live for Jesus but let me tell you it is worth it. The other road is all about material things or worldly possessions and those things can’t compare to Jesus Christ. The internal peace and love you find on this road is unexplainable. There is a comfort and strength that comes when you know the one and only true Savior protects and loves you. Satan may come against you but the bible says nothing can pluck you out of God’s hands. God will protect us when we are weak because we are his. You realize on this road you are somebody to Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ died for you just hoping you would love him back. On this road we get to spend eternity with our Lord and Savior. I don’t believe we can even process how wonderful heaven will be until we get there.
The sad thing is I don’t believe the people on the road to destruction can process how horrible Hell will be. As Christians, we don’t talk about Hell to people anymore because we don’t want to scare them. We don’t want to call sin a sin anymore because we might hurt someone’s feelings. We don’t want to quote the bible anymore because we might offend someone.
As Christians, what road are we on if we don’t tell people the truth about Hell, call sin a sin, or quote the bible to others? How are we going to stand before God and say we never told the lost about him? How can we tell God we didn’t warn the very people he sent his son to die for because we didn’t want to hurt their feelings? As Christians, we need to be the flashing lights of caution and holding the detour signs for the path to righteousness and get people off the path to destruction. We can only do this by telling people the truth about Jesus.
Thank you for reading and hope you all have a great day in Jesus Christ!!
