The Long and Winding Road

How do I get to heaven?

It’s a question that has been asked since Biblical times. How many people asked Jesus how they could get to heaven? If you saw Jesus, you either asked Him that question or you asked about healing. In some ways, they are the same.

Now, there are several standard expressions of faith, but it’s one thing to say that you have to believe in Jesus to get to heaven and quite another to live that out in your daily life.

“Heaven is not the cash payment for walking with God, it is where the road goes.” – Austin Farrer

You can believe in Jesus, and you can even proclaim it from the rooftops, but at some point you have to start walking on the road. We can’t stop at the Dairy Queen and expect to get to our destination because we programmed our Google maps.

The wonderful thing is that once we program in our destination, we are given directions. Notice that the road going to heaven is not walked alone. It is only possible to be walked with God. Fortunately for us, He knows the way. We only need to keep Him close.

If you drive any great distance, you will see that the road has changes greatly from place to place. Our road with God will, too. What road has God taken you on this week? Was it bumpy? Smooth? Beautiful? Desolate? I’d love to hear about it.

The road to heaven is not traveled by walking, but by loving, St. Augustine, Amayzing Graces, Karen May
