Two-way or a one-way road

Two-way roads? Is that what you are traveling on today? Or is it all one way? Meaning this is with your friends.

Friendship is a two-way road, or at least it should be. We need to be there for our friends, and they need to be there for us.

Some of my friends in the past have started this way but then changed. There is giving and taking. Then something changes. It could be just life on both sides, but it changes.

In the past, I have had friends say they would be there for me, only to discover that I was the only one reaching out later. When I stop, they don’t come looking for me. Or there was another who told me I could not say anything about our friendship.

I am here to tell you today that you have a friend who loves you no matter what. Who sees you and loves you. God saw us in our sins and then sent us the answer because He loved us. John 3:16 shows us how much. Jesus laid down His deity and accepted a human body to give us a way back into fellowship with God and Eternal life.

What a friend we have in Jesus that He would do this for us. The question is, what does your road look like traveling to Jesus?

  • A two-way road (where you believe in Him and what He did, read the Bible, pray, and listen for His answer)
  • A one-way road traveling in your direction (you only want to receive from God
  • Or a one-way road only in His way where you talk with Him but never pick up the Bible to see what He has to say to you?
