The 90’s pop song tells us that “Life is a Highway and it certainly is with the mass of humanity surg- ing frantically toward their lusts. Have you ever been stuck on a log jammed freeway?
In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus tells us that there is another way. Thankfully there is an exit strategy! It’s possible to get off the highway and onto the feeder road. This is the road less travelled, where things are exceedingly more peaceful, and the destination is unending life in God’s presence. To get off the Highway of this world we must go through the toll booth to settle our debts. Jesus Christ has paid the penalty for us. He’s the narrow gate, the entry ramp to life! Living on the highway is unsustainable; it’s time to head for the exit ramp!
“For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.” Mt 7:14
Have you exited the highway of this world?
