Everybody enjoys a beautiful, scenic ride.
Very few people really enjoy riding the flat, straight roads.
The flat, straight roads are practical when you are in a hurry, but nobody really enjoys riding them.
Many people have ignored or rejected God because they think He wants to take the joy out of the ride,
But God loves you and wants you to have a wonderful ride through life.
In fact, Jesus said, “…I have come that they might have life and have it to the fullest!” (John 10:10)
The Bible says “There is a way that seems right to man, but in the end it leads to death.” (Prov. 16:10)
We have all taken some wrong turns on life’s road (committed sin).
Romans 3:23 tells us that “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”
Any turn from the road detours us from Heaven to Hell.
Romans 6:23 says “For the wages (or destruction and the result) of sin is death…”
If the Grand Canyon separates you from your destination, you’re done.
Your bike can’t jump the Grand Canyon, no matter how good it is!
Everyone’s spiritual ride ends at the canyon of Sin and Death.
You can’t jump it no matter how good you’ve been.
There is no way YOU can do it, but God made a bridge over it.
The Bible says that God showed his love for us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us. (Rom. 5:8)
Jesus paid the price for our sins because He loves you, and He did this to rescue you and me from the death sentence that sin has caused.
In John 14:6 Jesus said, “I am the way the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
To simply know the facts about a bridge does nothing to solve your dilemma.
You must MAKE THE DECISION to cross over the bridge.
A bridge isn’t crossed by acknowledging its presence, or by good intentions of crossing it someday.
You must accept Jesus Christ as God’s only answer for your dilemma
A couple isn’t married until they commit their lives and say “I do.”
Jesus Christ isn’t Lord until you commit your life to him.
You must accept Christ by an act of your will in faith, not the feelings of your emotions.
You do this by simply asking Him to come into your life and take over.
In Revelations 3:20 Jesus said, “Behold I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in…”
Would you say you’re on your own plan that seems sensible to you, is as good as any other way, and that you hope to figure out how to cross that canyon when you get there.
Would you say that you’re on God’s Ride Plan of allowing His Son Jesus Christ and the Bible to direct your life and riding with the Good Shepherd knowing that He has provided a way to cross that canyon by receiving His love?
Which plan best describes your life?
Would you like to take this opportunity to change to Ride Plan 2?
Changing roads is easy to do.
The Bible teaches us: “That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord”, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. (Rom. 10:9)
The Bible also says that “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved (Rom. 10:10).
God loves you. He has shown you that love when Jesus died on the cross for your sins.
Today you can accept God’s love an eternal salvation just by asking Jesus Christ to be your Lord and Savoir.
Would you like to receive eternal life?If so you can pray a simple prayer. Something like this:
“Father, I know that I am a sinner….
I believe that you died for my sins…
Forgive me of my sins….
And come into my life as my Lord and Savior
“…to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.” John 1:12
