"A road will be there and a way; it will be called the Holy Way. The unclean will not travel on it, but it will be for him who walks the path.Even the fool will not go astray."
Recently, I was making an early morning drive to speak at a Huddle meeting. As I was driving along I realized that I was the only car going in my direction. Hundreds of cars were going the other way. Why was I the only one going my way? I knew the route, so I knew I was on the right road, so I couldn't help but wonder why no one else was traveling my direction.
In God's Word, we read many references to "the way." Isaiah wrote of such a road that is less traveled. It was the highway to holiness. Many were headed down the wrong path or way -- not so uncommon to our society today. In John 14, Thomas asked Jesus about the way to go with Him, but Christ answered simply, "I AM the way. . ."
My simple driving story made me think that morning. I knew my destination and wondered why I was the only one heading my direction. Sometimes our walk with Christ is like that. The world around us is heading one direction, and we might be the only ones heading towards the cross of Christ. Many turn back and head down the wrong way or take a detour on their way to the cross. We get easily distracted by what seems to be the right way because everyone else is heading there. Folks, remember this: Jesus Christ is the only way we need to be heading. If it is not about Christ, I am pretty sure it is not the right way. Don't be afraid to be the only one heading in the right direction, because your destination is counting on it that you stay on track. So stay on HWY H (Holiness) and make the most of your journey.
1. Are you going the right way in your life?
2. Are you able to head in the right direction, or are you easily distracted to go the wrong way?
3. Today, how can you make sure you are heading in the right direction toward your heavenward home?
