How Can I Know The Way?
Around the world, every day, people are travelling. They may use many different modes of transport – car, train, boat, or aeroplane, but one thing they all have in common is that their journey is taking them to a destination. Dear reader, you may not realise it, but you are on a journey. That journey started the moment you were born. This journey is on one of two roads, either the broad road ‘that leadeth to destruction’ (Matthew 7:13) or the narrow road ‘that leadeth unto life’ (verse 14). The question I want you to ask yourself is this: ‘What road am I on?’ The road to Heaven or the road to Hell? The Bible says: ‘WHEREFORE, AS BY ONE MAN SIN ENTERED INTO THE WORLD, AND DEATH BY SIN; AND SO DEATH PASSED UPON ALL MEN, FOR THAT ALL HAVE SINNED’ (Romans 5:12). When we were born, we were born as sinners and so started life on the broad road. However, you can get off this road and onto the narrow road. Thomas asked a question similar to the title of this tract – ‘How can we know the way?’ The answer the Lord Jesus Christ gave is found in John 14 verse 6: ‘I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE: NO MAN COMETH UNTO THE FATHER, BUT BY ME’. The Lord Jesus Christ is the only way to Heaven. God gave His only Son to the Cross of Calvary to lay down His life because of our sin. John 3 verse 16 says: ‘FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD, THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE’. I am glad I can tell you not of a dead Saviour, but one who is risen and gone back to Heaven where He is ‘crowned with glory and honour’ (Hebrews 2:9). The Bible talks about being lost. We read of the lost sheep, the lost silver and the lost son in Luke Chapter 15 - and the lost soul in Luke Chapter 16. That lost soul perished. There is a difference in being lost and perishing. To be lost means that you can be found again, but to perish means to be lost forever. You don’t have to continue the way you’re going; you can move onto the narrow road and start the journey to Heaven. Repent of your sins and put your faith and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ. There’s a way back to God from the dark paths of sin; There’s a door that is opened that all may go in: At Calvary’s cross is where you begin, When you come as a sinner to Jesus.
