Which Road Are You Traveling?
Are you traveling the broad road to eternal destruction or the narrow road to eternal life? In this world there are many different roads, but in the spiritual world there are only two. And these two never intersect. They are as opposite from on another as darkness from light, and hell from heaven. Only God, in His free grace, can take us off the broad road to destruction and place us on the narrow road to everlasting life.
Friend, we beseech you, turn from your unbelief and your sinful and evil ways. Cry for true conversion from Him who not only said, “Ye must be born again,” but who also testified of Himself, “The Son of man is come to seek and to save that which is lost.” If your soul is lost and your condition miserable, beg the Lord to make room within you for the gospel message of Jesus Christ and Him crucified.
Allow me to leave you with a final admonition. In the twenty-seven books of the New Testament, hell is mentioned 234 times. If life’s road were twenty-seven miles long, and there were 234 billboards along this route whish all read, “This road leads to hell,” would you stay on that road? As long as you are unrepenting, unbelieving, Christless, and self-satisfied, you are on this road to hell. Hell is the end of a worldly or religious life which remains Christless. Hell is the only destination for those who reject Christ.
This short message is still another billboard sent by God to you on your pathway of life to warn you that all the ways of man end in death (Prov. 14:12). But there is a remedy, “Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near” (Isa. 55:6)
How many more billboards will the Lord send your way before His patience comes to an end, and He fulfills His Word: “It is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment”?
Make haste for your life’s sake. The thread of your life is not yet cut, but it is growing increasingly thin and brittle.
The door of grace is still open. The throne of Christ is not yet shut. Will you hear His voice before it is too late? “Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him”(Ps. 2:12).
All those who have lived without God on earth shall be without God in hell. How terrible it shall be to experience with the rich man in Luke 16, “In hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments…And he cried…I am tormented in this flame.”
Dear Friend, I desire to warn you with love. You and I cannot escape death. It is and appointment we will keep…regardless.
Are you prepared to die?
