"What's your Last Destination?"
Where were you heading to on
your last trip? Was it Milwaukee, New York, Denver,
And where will you be heading to your next trip and your
future trips? As a
truck driver your goal is to arrive safely at your designated
point of dispatch.
You can't be sure you will arrive at your destination safely,
but you will use
all of your skills to try to attain this goal. There is one
last Destination, however,
that you can be sure of, Heaven or Hell. It is your choice to
Your dispatchers will have no say-so on this trip. You are
your own dispatcher,
and can pick your own destination and lay-over point. Would
you like to layover
forever in a place where you will have no pain, no sorrow, no
worries, no trials,
no temptations, and failures, but only peace and happiness
forever and ever?
Or do you want to layover in Hell, where you will suffer pain
and agony, heart-break
and anguish forever and ever?
The Bible tells us in John 14 that Jesus told His
disciples He was going
away to prepare a place for us. This place, called Heaven, has
golden street, wall of jasper, gates of pearl, beautiful fruit
tree, and a refreshing
river of the water of life flowing through it (Revelation

Sure you would! Jesus does not want you to miss this place
He shed His blood and freely gave His life for you, so that
you might have
an eternal layover point in Heaven. Remember, you
must get on this highway immediately, for the Bible says,
is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation."
2 Corinthians 6:2. As you know, there are
certain qualifications you
must meet to become a truck driver. There are also certain
you must meet to become a Christian. Let's travel down the
Romans Highway and see what these qualifications are.
The Romans Road:
First, you must realize you are a
sinner, because Jesus says He came not
to call the righteous but sinners to repentance. The
stopping place on The Romans Highway is:
Romans 3:10 "As it is written,
There is none righteous, no, not one:"
Our next stop is Romans 3:23 which says, "For
all have sinned,
and come short of the glory of God;"
The 2nd thing you must realize is that salvation
is in a Person,
the Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 5:12 says,
"Wherefore, as by one man sin
entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death
upon all men, for that all have sinned:"
Romans 6:23 says, "For the wages of sin
is death; but the
gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our
Romans 5:8 says, "But God commendeth his
love toward us
in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died
The 3rd thing you must realize is that Jesus
will save you if you will
call upon His name. Romans 10:9 says, "That if thou
shalt confess with thy
mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe
in thine heart that God hath raised Him (Jesus) from the
dead, thou shalt be saved." Romans 10:13
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be
