There are two roads, only one leads to Heaven

Many years ago in New York, an athiest died.

In his will, he said, “I want to leave my farm to the devil.” the legal system was dumbfounded.

Finally, the court decided the best way to carry out the atheist’s wishes was to let the weeds and briars take over the farm. Don’t paint

the barn or house. Just let it rot away.

The court said this: “The best way to let the devil have possession is to do nothing.”

The same is true with each one of us.

We must make the right decisions in life and not just go along with the crowd or we will just waste our lives.

Each decision we make turns us into a person who is in harmony with God or in opposition to God.

Decisions affect our lives on earth and also our lives in eternity.

Therefore, it is important that we make the right decisions.

Jesus talked about two paths we all must travel.

One leads to heaven. The other leads to hell.

He also talked about two groups of people – the majority and the minority.

It seemed that the majority were traveling the wrong road and the minority were on the road to heaven.

You may wonder why so many people would travel the wrong road and reject the right road.

They just simply refuse to trust Jesus as their Savior.

They are not opposed to religion or living a good life or doing good deeds. They just don’t want to trust Jesus for salvation.

That’s why those traveling the narrow path are on the right road. They have trusted Jesus as the way to heaven.

He said, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No man comes to the Father (God the Father) but by Me.”

Satan is like the pied piper. He is singing his song of lies and the world is dancing to his music, not realizing that they are on the wrong road.

We all must make our own decisions. What will you decide?

Will you continue traveling the broad road that leads to destruction or will you trust Jesus and be saved and travel the straight and narrow path?

The choice is yours. I hope you will make the right decision. Your eternal destiny depends on it.
