Life is More than a Journey
Bikers have a saying, “It’s not the destination, but the journey” and country singer Mac Davis had this hit “Stop and Smell the Roses”. In my 70+ years I’ve come to see life as more than a journey, it’s an opportunity to serve the Creator God or self.
In the book of Joshua 24:15 – But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.”
We’re faced with that exact situation today. Do we serve the gods of greed, fame, or fortune? Do we question the wisdom of the God, who created us that maybe he made a mistake? Are our idols held high on the pedestal of Hollywood’s Sunset Boulevard or New York’s Wall Street? Do we sacrifice our children on the altar of abortion?
Have we abdicated our nation to self-serving politicians because we are convinced that it is the government who knows what is best for us? I find it hard to believe that the God of the bible would abandon his people, this nation and stand aside while we allow our nation to suffer and die because we did nothing. In the words of Patrick Henry, “I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death.”
People pray and ask God to do something. They do not even hear his answer that he did send his son Jesus to save us from our sin and he created you – for such a time as this! – I am the Real Truckmaster!
