“The Road to Safety”

A news correspondent, forced to jump from a crippled plane over New Guinea, landed safely. He sought a way out of the jungle. Up mountains, down the rivers, through the thick jungle growth he traveled, only to return discouraged to his starting point.

Day by day, week by week, he took one way after another – but there was no road. At last he suddenly came upon a break in the tall grass where apparently some animal had passed. Following the break he found himself on a narrow road! What joy! Later he was found by missionaries and taken to a hospital and the safety of civilization.

Think what that road meant to that correspondent! Just that does the Word of God mean to man as he wanders through the wilderness of a sinful life. Seeking his own ways by himself, he constantly returns to his starting point – still lost, without hope, unable to find the way to eternal life.

How good it is to know that there was One who said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
