You know the way to the place where I am going.
(John 14:4 (NIV))
If you heard these words, would you know the destination?
We have the fortunate perspective of time on our side, so I hope and pray that each of us would know the destination that is being spoken of.
What about the people that you see on a daily basis? Does the man in the drive thru where you buy your coffee know of the destination? Does your favorite bank teller know? What about the police officers that patrol near your office? What about the postal employees that deliver your mail? What about the people who teach your children? Do any of them know of the destination that Jesus speaks of?
More importantly, if they don’t, have YOU told them?
God’s grace and mercy is not for a select few. It is for everyone.
The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.
(2 Peter 3:9 (NIV))
If salvation, grace and mercy are for everyone, what gives us the right to keep it from someone? What gives us the right to be selfish with a gift that we did not give and we have received through mercy even when we did not deserve it? We must realize that there is more than ample supply for every single person who has or will ever live? God’s grace is limitless.
Slow down and listen to God. Listen to His gentle nudgings. He is asking us to tell someone of the place that Jesus spoke of. He is telling us to invite them along.
