The resurrection of Jesus opens to mankind the path to eternity. You are blessed and favored of the Lord to have been given this secret! It has come to you by the way of Him who said that He is the way. Who said to Martha “those who live and believe in me will never die,” and who speaks by the psalmist David (ps. 16.11) “You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.”
Nobody knows this truth by nature! In no way can you reason it out by yourself. All the scientific inquiring or figuring will never find it out. Nor will reading the National Geographic or asking NASA help you find it! For that matter the many religions of the world will neither be able to help you find the path to life!
It is only in the Biblical Scriptures that the Lord leads you to this path. It is revealed knowledge of God in who Jesus said “those who live and believe in me will never die.” With your own reason or strength you cannot believe! But the Spirit of God enlightens you with faith in this good news and keeps you in this faith. You are highly favored.
But right now in your life you may have your doubts! And you may be troubled as is our world! You may even be weighed down with worries and feel frustrated and even broken wondering if anything is worthwhile! But before you know it you will be standing before the smiling Lord who said He was the way, the life and the truth as you are filled with joy. The aches and pains of this life will be replaced with pure pleasure in our Lord’s new world. We will find it was “worth the wait.”
If you have friends or acquaintances who may not know about the “path to life,” gently share this good news with them. This is just the same old good news that the risen Christ sent His disciples with into the world. He said “Go” and still says “Go!” If you can’t go at least help go! Stay on the path to life and help others find it.
