It was a perfect day to visit the zoo.Â The animals were active. The weatherÂ was balmy. We were enthralled forÂ quite some time watching the monkeysÂ cavorting with one another, swingingÂ from the ropes and playing with theÂ toys. We strode from one exhibit to theÂ next, enjoying our day out as a family.Â Finally we stopped outside the tigerÂ cage. The full day was taking its toll onÂ the children. It was time to go home.Â But, where were we in relation to ourÂ vehicle? Thankfully not too far from usÂ was a zoo map. With a nice bright starÂ it announced, â€œYou are here!â€ We knewÂ we wanted to go to our van in parkingÂ lot â€˜Fâ€™, so all we had to do was plan ourÂ route there by using the map.
Have you taken a look at the TwoÂ Roads chart in the centre of thisÂ magazine? It is a map of life and eternity.Â There is no bright star announcing,Â â€œYou are hereâ€, but perhaps you alreadyÂ know where you would place yourself onÂ this chart.
We are born on what the Bible callsÂ the Broad Way. Many stay on this road,Â and their ultimate destination is Hell.Â However, there is a small door leadingÂ to the Narrow Way. The Lord JesusÂ Christ, Godâ€™s beloved Son, said, â€œI am theÂ doorâ€ ( John 10:9). Because He paid theÂ price for our sin, when we trust Him asÂ Saviour our sins are no longer a barrierÂ to Heaven. We enter through the DoorÂ onto the Narrow Way. Most of us readilyÂ admit that we want to be in HeavenÂ when we die. If you know you are on theÂ Broad Way and you know you want to beÂ in Heaven, you must choose the Saviour.
No one knows how many steps theyÂ will have in their journey toward theÂ pillar of death. For some people it willÂ be a few steps; for others it will be many.Â Enter in at the Door while you have theÂ opportunity. One of these days, possiblyÂ very soon, the Lord Jesus is going toÂ return to the air. All those who are savedÂ and on the Narrow Way will rise to meetÂ Him. The earth will be emptied of allÂ Christians. Those who are left behindÂ will no longer have a choice about theirÂ destiny. They will eventually be in Hell.Â Be sure you know where you are headingÂ in this journey of life!
