• The Preacher Says



by Keith Bellamy

Have you ever tried to go on a trip and discovered that the map you were using was wrong? Or maybe someone gave you the wrong directions. I have also known people who cannot read a map. They just can't do it. And now we have GPS that is supposed to be accurate. I tried our GPS years ago just to see what it would do. On one occasion a highway had a number on it that hadn't been used since 1958. So, what is one to do?

My mother was not a very good driver. In fact, she couldn't read a map very well, and she often turned down the wrong road. This was especially exciting when we were on a long trip!

My dad would get directions from different guys he worked with and I think all of them must have enjoyed going on joy rides. On one occasion my wife and I took one of those directions and drove about 300 miles out of the way. So, we don't listen to other people when they give directions. We will look at the map, and sometimes we will trust the GPS.

Now apply all of this when it comes to eternal salvation. Did not Jesus say, “I am The Way” (John 14:6)?

When the Ethiopian did not understand what he was reading, he asked for help. (Read the whole story in Acts chapter 8.) After Philip explained the scriptures and told him about Jesus, "Then both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water and Philip baptized him" (Acts 8:38).

If you are not sure as to which way to turn, call us. We will not judge you. We are here to help.
