The Way Back To God

How did we get off of the path that God had intended for our lives? What is the way back to living a life with the Lord Jesus Christ? If we were traveling down a road heading towards our goal and we became uncertain as to which road to take and made the wrong choice, we would eventually end up lost. That’s what happens when we choose the path of sin in our lives… we become lost.

Matthew 18:12-14
What do you think? If a man owns a hundred sheep and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off? And if he finds it, I tell you the truth, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off. In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should be lost.

If we become lost, God wants us to come back and join him in the destination that he intended for our lives. It will be easier to meet him if we turn away from the wrong way we are headed and turn back toward him. If we continue in the wrong direction we eventually will leave our destination towards God far behind.
