At the Crossroads of Spiritual Journey

On 9th November, 2007 I was talking with someone who told me that he believes in God, yes, but he abandoned going to church or engaging in any religious commitment.

His reason? He laments the spiritual confusion in the world. He doesn’t know who to believe and who not to believe.

One mistake that we make is that we think that establishing a relationship with God depends on what people think or do around us. The question is, if you are travelling and you come to the crossroads, do you stop your journey because the roads crisscross one another and lead into different directions? We can be sure that at the crossroads, people will take different directions—we better know where we are going to proceed. Remaining at the crossroads or following “anybody” is not acceptable.

By choosing not to continue with the journey to our destination, we shall have chosen to end up at the wrong destination.

Religious confusion is, therefore, not enough excuse, in fact, there is no “acceptable” excuse to refuse God’s offer of salvation and relationship with Him.

Remember: if we have a Paul in our life, we have to follow him only on condition that he is following Christ. This implies that we know who Christ is so that we can tell if Paul is following Him 1 Corinthians 11:1

Hi Daniel, I like the way you present this case: It is simple and to the point. If one is not a born-again believer excuses are galore and will be used. But once a believer is born-again and growth is taking place then they know the benefits of coming together for fellowship. Many time we find young believers stuck at the crossroad or choosing the wrong path because they have not be given the necessary instructions needed to take them off the baby food so that they can move to maturity. This is why it is important for the church to educate believers. Thanks for sharing this thought. God bless!

Short, direct and to the point! Masterful writing, but something I've got to re-ponder, as it is very deep thinking...and I think I'm still at the crossroads thinking, pondering, wondering and praying for direction! Thanks for sharing, Daniel. Good thoughts.

Very good article. Many have walked this path. The ONLY good road is the one we walk with Jesus as he leads us, following him no matter what others think or say. This, of course, is assuming the person is born again. GOD BLESS YOU

This is an excellent analogy. Thanks for sharing.
