MISDIRECTED!

A

terrible blizzard was raging over the eastern part of the United States, making the progress of a train more and more difficult.

Among the passengers was a woman with a child, who was very concerned about get­ting off at the right station. A gentleman, seeing her anxiety, said, “Don’t worry. I know the route well, and I’ll tell you when you come to your station.”

Finally the train stopped at the sta­tion before the one where the woman wanted to get off. “The next station will be yours, ma’am,” said the gentleman. Then they went on, and in a few minutes the train stopped again.

“Now’s your time, ma’am; get out quickly,” he said. The woman picked up her child and, thanking the gentleman for his kindness, left the train.

Wrong Directions!

At the next stop, to his surprise and alarm, the conductor called out the name of the sta­tion where the woman had wanted to get off.

“You’ve already stopped at this station!” called the gentleman to the official.

“No, sir,” he replied. “Something was wrong with the engine, and we stopped for a few moments to repair it.”

“Oh no!” gasped the passenger. “I’ve put that woman off in the storm when the train stopped between stations!”

Afterwards they found her with her child in her arms. Both were frozen to death, the tragic result of wrong directions.

Still worse are the results of misdirecting someone heading for eternity. It’s obvious that with the contradictory voices we hear to­day, many of the directions given must be false and misleading, even when given by well-meaning people. They can’t all be right.

Caution

We should all be on our guard against be­ing misdirected for eternity. It’s all too important to rest on uncertainties with such a critical issue as our soul’s salvation and as to where we’ll spend eternityin heaven or in hell. It must be one of the two places.

Thank God, there’s no need for us to de­pend on doubtful counsel. In His own sure Word, He has Himself given the only clear directions to heaven. The way He indi­cates is not the way of “doing our best” or of “observing the golden rule” or of “trying to be good.”

We are assured at the outset that none of these ways will lead us to heaven. We have all wandered too far from God for those di­rections to help us.

The Word of God points to Christ as the only way. He suffered at Calvary, not merely as a martyr, but as a sin-bearer, making atonement by His blood. Now that He is risen from the dead, He is proclaimed to all as the Object of faith. The way to have blessing for the present and glory for eternity lies in trusting Him. The Bible de­clares, “To Him give all the proph­ets witness, that through His name whosoever believ­eth in Him shall receive remission of sins” (Acts 10:43). Could words be plainer?

True wisdom is to follow the accurate directions of the Word of God and escape the awful danger of being mis­directed.

“He that believeth on the Son hath ever­lasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him” (John 3:36).
