I confess; I love electronic gadgets. (Unfortunately, I cannot afford most of them.) But the one device I probably use the most is my GPS. I use it even if I know how to reach my destination because the GPS “might” know a faster route.
When using a GPS, it will ask the user if they want to start at their present location. To most of us, that is a mute question. Of course, I want to start at my current location! But the GPS cannot give you directions unless it has all the information.
People who desire a relationship with God, know they are not where they should be, spiritually speaking, but the problem is they do not know where to start. Many people think they need to “get their act together” before they can come to God. They think must give up this, stop doing that, start going to church, etc. It is sometimes difficult to convince people that they are sinners Romans 3:23. Many believe there has to be something they need to do before they can come before God. Titus 3:5
God’s GPS tells us where we are; we are separated from God [lost] and we need to confess to Him that we need a Savior. Only by fully trusting Jesus’ death on the cross as payment for our sins; can we be made right with God. Once you trust Christ to forgive your sins; God’s GPS (The Holy Spirit) will guide you to your destination. John 16:13
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6
