Traffic Jam

   There are a million roads to Hell, but not a single one that leads out. What are you doing to divert traffic? If you say leading by example, examine yourself.

If they see you in the bar, they’ll drive their car down the same road you are on. Why are you off the Way?

If they see you stealing, be it time from your employer or items off a store shelf, they’ll drive down the same road you are on. Why are you off the Way?

If they hear you using foul language or telling a dirty joke, they’ll drive down the same road you are on. Why are you off the Way? And do you have another mouth you swap that one out for when you pray?

If they see you watching movies or reading books that are full of wickedness and violence like Twilight, Harry Potter, Avatar, etc, they’ll drive down the same road you are. Why are you off the Way?

If they see you talking about other people and tearing them down rather than building them up, they’ll follow down the same road you are on. Why are you off the Way?

If they see a sour face from you and hear complaining all the time, they’ll follow down the same road you are on. Why are you off the Way?

If they see you listening to music that talks about cheating, sex, drugs, lying, murder, and the ways of the world, they’ll follow down the same road you are on. Why are you off the Way?

If the clothes you wear are a picture frame for your body and not a picture frame for you face, they’ll follow down the same road you are on. Why are you off the Way?

If you are having sex outside of marriage and don’t hold to God’s decree of one man and one woman in a marriage for life, they’ll follow down the same road you are on. Why are you off the Way?

If they see you venting anger, driving with road rage instead of courtesy, and having that same aspect in everyday life situations, they’ll follow down the same road you are on. Why are you off the Way?

If they see you treat your kids like dirt, lack respect for adults or authority, or have nothing good to say about your parents, they’ll follow down the same road you are on. Why are you off the Way?

If you can only love people that love you back instead of also loving those you don’t know or those that hate you, they’ll follow down the same road you are on. Why are you off the Way?

If people can’t take you at your word because you are a deceitful person, they’ll follow down the same road you are on. Why are you off the Way?

If you are more focused on money, riches, and prosperity in this world, they’ll follow down the same road you are on. Why are you off the Way?

 

   Now that you’ve had time to think about those things, when you look in the mirror, can you really see the Light of Jesus in you? Or do you look like the world because you are doing the same things they are doing? Not only are you steering others down the wrong way, but you yourself are so caught up in denial, you’ve excused yourself, and made yourself above God’s Holy Laws by thinking you can live your life any old way you want to. Why are you off the Way? Perhaps because you can’t hear God’s voice, don’t know when He is talking to you, or you’ve completely ignored convictions of the Holy Spirit. Why can’t you hear God’s voice? For the same reason that taking time daily to pray other than bed-time and mealtime seems to elude you. For the same reason that every time you go to read the Bible, something more interesting comes up and you’d rather spend time reading chapter upon chapter out of another book. For the same reason when there is time to fellowship with other Christians, you just can’t seem to make time. You can’t hear God’s voice, because you’ve been too busy listening to Satan’s. Go ahead, ask yourself, why are you off the Way?

 

1 John 1:5-6

5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.

6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:

In His Grace,

       Mike Harris Jr.
