Recently my family and I travelled through the outback. It was such a wonderful experience – open roads, few other people, spectacular scenery.
The only problem was - we had to go into major towns from time to time to stock up on food. Now normally this wouldn't be a problem. But towing a caravan and navigating city streets is quite tricky! Especially if you make a wrong turn into a one way street.
Sometimes it seems like our journey with Christ can be like this. We cruise along comfortably when no troubles are close - but every now and then we get crowded in and make a wrong turn.
What is comforting for us as Christians is that Jesus IS the way. There are no confusing tricks, no hoops to jump through, no special rules. Just one - FOLLOW HIM. Jesus says in John 14:6 - "I am the way the truth and the life".
Rest assured that no matter what turns you make in life, as long as you're turned towards Jesus, you are safe with him.
