How does a person know that he or she is lost? Many people go out in the woods and just wander. They aren’t aiming at a destination. They are just exploring. Yet, even the early explorers took a compass with them or gauged their journey by the stars.
Today, a lot of people are just wandering with their lives. They have no plan or goal for their future, they don’t aim at a career and apply themselves to preparation. They are just wandering in life without direction and wonder why they end up in a place they don’t want to be.
Well, our spiritual life is like that. We need direction and a goal to make right choices toward those goals. If not, we are just wandering and perhaps we might realize we are LOST! So we can be lost and not even realize it until we end up in a place we don’t want to be. Maybe even hell. Jesus says He is the way, the truth and the life and no one comes to the Father except by Him (John 14:6). The question is, do you want to eventually go to the Father… home… in heaven? If not, you may be surprised by ending up in a place where you don’t want to be.
This message will help you to determine whether you are lost or on track toward a destination that you get to choose.
