Enjoy The Journey

Monday, September 29, 2014

Monday morning while driving to a breakfast meeting I noticed a billboard. I have driven along this section of Lewis Avenue many times. But I had never seen this particular billboard. And to be very honest I cannot even remember what the sign was advertising. So it may not be an advertisement of which I would approve. Nevertheless, the sign simply said, "Enjoy The Journey." I do not know what journey I am supposed to enjoy. So I am assuming the encouragement to "enjoy the journey" meant the journey of life. That is what I am taking it to mean anyway!

So here is the question. Are you enjoying the journey of life? Or are you just going through life. The next question is how do we get to the place where we can enjoy life. I think the answer is found in your relationship with Jesus. Jesus said, "I came that they might have life, and have it abundantly." Abundant life sounds like a life of joy to me. Abundant life sounds like a life you could enjoy. The word abundant means "something that is above the ordinary". In other words Jesus came to give us life and the life that He gives is life above the ordinary.

So it seems to me that if I am to enjoy the journey of life I need to know and follow Jesus. He came for a purpose. And that purpose was that we could live a life that was above the ordinary.

Back to the billboard on Lewis. "Enjoy the Journey", it said. And I believe I will. I will enjoy the journey of life. To do that I will follow Jesus. Come on friends, "Enjoy the Journey."
