"Mapquest" for Heaven
Every time I have to travel to a place I've never been or I was not there, my favorite place to find the maps. Everything seems so easy, you just have to enter your place and destination, and with one click, you get the expensive directions. The shortest route, the fastest way, the way you travel and the time of travel.
Does it sound great? Yes, everything is easy … But traveling is not easy and if you start traveling, you will find that there are unforeseen things like traffic jam, accident, and sometimes bad driving. In most cases mapquest is in a good direction, but sometimes there are bad directions.
I remember leaving for Georgia, and I lost it after the trip. I was lucky to have my cell phone with me and call my friend who got the right direction. This is because every year new roads are being made and sometimes the map is not updated yet.
For example, I've lived in the same place for more than two years, and mapquest still can not find my address. It is true that he is very close to it but not in the right place.
Everyone needs life and not just directions but the best directions. You want to make the best choices for you and never miss out on your opportunities and take full advantage of your opportunities. But let me ask a question: Have you always made the right choices? Do you always have the perfect direction?
A few years ago, the US planned the peace process for the Middle East, the so-called "Guide". They were determined to follow and bring peace to this confused area. I do not know whether this plan worked or not, but I know it is not peace in this area.
The truth is we do not always get the best directions and we do not follow them. The Bible says, "There is a way of seeing a true man, but the way of death is over." (Prov 14:12) or else he says, "He is a true man in many things." Yes, so we have so many ideas, advice from others, listening to teachings, the education we receive, all of which are solving the problem. Only when we begin traveling after the journey we find that they are not perfect and our soul is empty and uneasy.
We have a great deal of responsibility on our shoulders, our decisions not only affect our present and future on this earth, but may also affect our eternity. We have a mortal body, but an immortal soul, and Jesus says that our soul is more valuable than the whole world "Why is it profitable for a man to gain the whole world and lose his own soul, in exchange for his soul?" (Mt.16: 26).
Where are you looking for answers? Where are you looking for instructions? Where are you looking for advice?
Personally I know where the best mapquest is to find Heaven's directions. Jesus is the one who came from there and went to make us a castle in the world. He is the EASTERN ROUTE to heaven. That is why I seek direction in His Word, the Holy Bible, which has never been able to give me the best answers, the best solutions and the best directions in my life.
Why not try it? Peace and joy on the journey and wonderful greeting at the end of the trip. As long as you follow the directions of the Bible, you will never get lost and never be alone. Jesus himself said, "and behold, I am always with you, even at the end of the age." Amen. "(Mt 28: 20b)
