"What do you do for Christ each day?"
 A faithful Christian said.
And I replied, "I drive a truck
 And fill the stores with bread."

He said, "I know of your bread route
But that is not the thing.
I mean what do you do each day
 For Jesus Christ the King?"

I said, "But I believe a man
Can work in such a way,
That selling bread is work for Christ -
A sacrament each day."

Once more the man inquired, "But, sir,
If this is not unfair,
What do you do for Christ each day,
Like witnessing and prayer?"

I said, "Work is my best witness,
And selling bread to them
Is like a prayer in Jesus' name.
I drive this truck for Him!

'Trucker's Prayer'

Before I step into my truck, Let me open your door.
 Then bless me, Lord, and we'll be on our way.
     If I should meet with misfortune along the highway,
  steer me through my times of trouble.
       Be the first driver and map our way.
   Guide me through the fog into the next day.
  Be that light that shines at the top of the hill; and help me get there
    without any pills, but by way of God's will.
 Let my eyes foresee the dangers and I'll lend a helping hand.
  Touch me to lift my spirits I pray in Jesus' name.
  Direct me on the right roads and keep me
between the lines until we get where we are going.

Don't leave me behind!.

'Trucking with the Holy Spirit'

Imagine yourself sitting in the driver seat of a 18 Wheeler.
Try and turn the steering wheel while the truck is motionless. Impossible. But,
start the truck, put it in gear and start rolling.
Now it becomes easier to steer. The faster you go the easier it gets.

The Holy Spirit works in the same way.
If you are motionless (not active in the church, not spreading the gospel, etc.)
it is impossible for the Spirit to steer you. But when you start moving,
 the Spirit can steer you in the direction that you should be going.

If you don't know what God has in plan for you, don't wait.
Start doing something, He'll guide you through His Spirit!
And the more you move, the more

He will steer you. So get going, the Lord needs
you somewhere to do His work!

"What's your Last Destination?"

    Where were you heading to on your last trip? Was it Milwaukee, New York, Denver,
Phoenix? 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 make.

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 twelve foundations,
golden street, wall of jasper, gates of pearl, beautiful fruit tree, and a refreshing
river of the water of life flowing through it (Revelation 21-22).
Would you not regret missing a place like this for your final layover point?
Sure you would! Jesus does not want you to miss this place either.
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, "...behold, now
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 qualifications
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 first
  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 passed
  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 Lord."
  Romans 5:8 says, "But God commendeth his love toward us
 in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
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 promises,
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
