Travel Light Please

You have made up your mind to travel. Have you made adequate provision for your journey? Have you packed your luggage? Do you remember the contents in your bag or suit case? Will your luggage pass through security checks without problems? Unnecessary excess weight should be laid aside or discarded. Whatever your means of transport, you are strongly advised to travel light. It is unwise and unnecessary to take along what you would not need for your journey. The story was told of an old lady who boarded a coach traveling from one city to the next. She paid her fares, got the very heavy suitcase placed in the luggage compartment, but insisted on placing a medium-sized bag on her lap. She ignored the advice to place the smaller luggage underneath the seat or overhead space provided. She was most uncomfortable throughout the journey because she ignored the provision made for her comfort and convenience. We are all on the journey of life. We move along day by day. We carry some materials and drop some. In addition we do carry other issues which are much heavier than luggage. Issues such as anger, anxieties, hatred, pride, vain glory, unforgiving attitude, tyranny, greed; inclusive of other vices all of which we would describe as PSYCHO-TOXIC and therefore poisonous to the mind. Severe sicknesses of the mind develop in a prevailing psycho-toxic situation. These would lead to physical death and with stubborn neglect, these could lead to eternal or everlasting death. You are of three parts namely spirit, mind and body. The spirit is the real you and links you more closely to God , your Maker or negatively to Satan, the arch enemy of mankind. Your mind is centered in your brain and helps you to think, learn and respond to the intellectual realm. Your body helps you to respond to the physical realm. Anything or power which brings your spirit under the control of your mind or body is not good for you; it is sin and therefore makes you estranged to God. These vices are only being managed by human efforts, with limited success. If you must get rid of a bad tree, it is best to attack it at the roots. Clipping off the leaves periodically cannot do. Depending on human efforts alone leads to intermittent frustrations. The power of God through faith in Jesus Christ alone is able to help mankind to overcome these vices. It is tragic to travel through life with avoidable heavy burdens. Unfortunately many travel through life like the old lady in the story, ignoring the safe provisions made for comfortable travel. God has made adequate provision for you through Jesus Christ. Each person travels through life daily and at the end of all life’s journeys he or she would meet his or her Maker. At last, it would be payback or accountability time; when you would render to God how you spent your life on earth. Whether you accept this or not, it is very true. It could be disastrous to wait until the last minute before embracing God’s provision. The reason is that you do not know if you would be conscious enough to make any useful decision during your last few days, or hours in this world! For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son Jesus Christ, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16). All who receive Jesus , he gives to them the power to become children of God(John 1:10-12). Receive freedom today through Jesus Christ. Go Free. Travel smooth and Light.
Jesus said: Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light(Matthew11:28 -30). Jesus Christ is the burden and sin bearer for you and all other human beings. No one can afford to ignore him,because God has so appointed him. The Bible states: Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you (1 Peter 5:6-7).
