Have you noticed that some cities seem to be in a perpetual state of ruin? You know the cities I’m thinking of, the ones that seem to take pride in roads lined with bright orange traffic cones: As far as the eye can see, they dot the highway and try to guide you safely down the road.
A day or two ago, I was driving through an intersection laced with orange cones and concrete barriers, and I got a little nervous. It looked like I was being directed into the oncoming lane of traffic. For a moment I thought the engineer had been imported from England and he had brought his, drive-on-the-left-side-of-the-road, mentality with him.
This experience reminds me of the message on a sign: “One Way or Another.” The sober truth is that when you die, you will go one way or another.
The good news is that there is a road map to lead you through the detours and confusing intersections of life. Jesus said that He is the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6). If you will make the right turn and follow Jesus, you will never get left by Him.
