John 14:4  

“And where I go you know, and the way you know.”

Being lost is a terrifying sensation. It causes panic and frustration that tends to lead the lost person further away from rescue. Even with a map it is possible to become lost, which happens when one decides to rely on his or her own instincts instead of following the map that is laid out before them.

In today’s Scripture passage, Jesus assures each believer that we have the directions to go where He is going. Later in this same chapter Jesus says, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” Those words sum up the direction we are to travel in order to stay with the Lord.

As we travel this pathway of life there will always be a temptation to go our own willful way. I am here to tell you that taking that route will always end on a dead-end street. The results of going our own willful way will end in disaster.

We know where Jesus has gone and we know the way we are to follow. The question is whether we choose to act in obedience and follow as He leads us or go our own willful way. I choose to follow THE WAY!

May God richly bless you as you bless others by your words and actions!
