Today Reminder - 20 August 2012 (Have)

My prayer for you for today is that you will follow Jesus passionately and through Him find eternity, in Jesus name.

1 John 5:11-12
And this is what God has testified: He has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have God's Son does not have life.

Have - He has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. This scripture made me think of one that is always in my mind: Jesus told him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me. If you had really known me, you would know who my Father is. From now on, you do know Him and have seen Him!" (John 14)
There are so many roads in this world and each one leads to a destination. Each one of us travels on a road almost daily, whether it is by our own car or by bus or even by aeroplane. Each of these vessels takes us on our journey to our destination. Some roads have toll gates and other have pot holes, some have lines and other don’t, some are dirt roads and for some you can only travel by foot. Yet each road has a specific purpose, and a specific destination. Some roads lead into other roads and some roads don’t some roads you wish to travel alone and some you don’t want to be alone on. Sometimes you are in a hurry and sometimes you are relaxed.

In life we travel on roads. Each phase of our lives holds a new road and each road a new destination. Each destination indirectly brings us close to our final destination. On our way we chose our companions, we make friends, we get married and we have kids. Each of our companions has an effect on our destinations in each phase of our lives. We are either influenced by them in our choice of destinations or we chose a specific destination to be closer to them. 

Whatever road you find yourself on, the only companion that will take you to eternity is Jesus Christ, the Son of God. He is the only companion that has sacrificed Himself so that you can travel on your road to eternity without anything to hold you back. He is the light on this journey and He is the key to the doors you will find. He is the way, the truth and the life.

My dear friend, no matter where you find yourself on your journey, Jesus is waiting for you. He is life and life as we will never know it here on earth. Seek Him as your travelling companion and trust His guidance throughout your life travels. He is the key to your success and the one friend you do not want to be without. 

Come and travel with me today as we journey with Jesus. Enjoy the ride as we pass all the destinations of our life to reach our last destination, to be with Him in eternity.

Have an awesome journey today, dear friend of Jesus
