The Two Directions A Person Can Go
There are two directions that a person can go. One way leads to destruction and the other to life. Strange as it may be, most will take the broad way that destroys. Each must make his/her individual choice who to serve and which direction to go. He cannot decide to just stand still and remain as is. Life, time and the nature of right and wrong insists that we will be moving one direction or the other.
It matters where we are. On any journey this is true. But equally important is the direction we are going. Are we moving toward the desired destination or away from it? Cain and Abel set forth the two directions we can travel. Who will we follow? It determines life, death and eternity. Eternity in either Heaven or hell. Choose this day whom you will serve.
Two Kinds Of Hearers.
“Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say unto me in that day, Lord, Lord have we not prophesied in thy name, and in thy name cast out demons, and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then I will profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon the rock. And the rains descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house, and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
And everyone that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand. And the rains descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.” (Matt. 7:21-27).
