Marker on the Way

As I listened to the pastor speak on preaching, and what it is all about, my thoughts carried me away to what I would consider important about the preaching and preachers. I would say they need to be a ‘marker on the way’ to encourage all of us travelling the same road.

I walked home from church and though it was cold, I still thought of this marker on the way, and realized that it does not only apply to preachers and preaching but to each one of us as we travel together.

We can all identify in one way or another of travelling or hiking somewhere and at some point not being too sure of where we are or possibly where we need to go at from here. It is at a place like that where we appreciate the marker that points us the way.

The marker was put there by someone, experienced with the territory, probably travelled it frequently before, and realized there will be others coming this way for the first time or unfamiliar with the territory

So the challenge came to me; “Am I a marker along the way? Am I leading others out of unfamiliar territory? Am I pointing out the way?

My mind has no hard time finding an answer. It quickly replies, “of course!” But the question is not for my mind; The question is for my heart.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Good points here, Casey. Markers are so very important. We must make sure that we are pointing in the right direction. I've seen markers that have been twisted, pointing in the wrong direction. May we NOT be like that.

Casey, I like this. We need to make our walk match our talk, or as you say, be a marker.
