An Irishman came to America and lived here for a year before his wife came to join him. “Don’t these people talk funny?\” she remarked when she arrived. He replied, “If you think they talk funny now, you should have heard them when I came over a year ago!” We grow accustomed to conditions, and Christians may get used to the language and life of this world until what once surprised us becomes an accepted part of our lives.
Where Are You Going?
Lord, to whom shall we go?
Where could we go? Look down all other roads and see what they have to offer. It is Christ or else. The wisdom of man, the religions of the world, have no answer to the soul’s desperate cry, “Where could I go but to the Lord?”
Where would we go? If we do not follow the Light we go out into darkness, utter and eternal. We would go to hell if we did not go to Him. “He that believeth not is condemned already.”
Where should we go? To Jesus of course. Plain common sense tells us that nothing else satisfies. He has proven His case long ago. We ought to be Christians. God commands us to repent and believe.
It is a matter of eternal alternatives: saved or lost, justified or condemned, heaven or hell. “He that is not with me is against me.”
“There is a way which seemeth right unto a man.” I am the way. Which way are you going?
