God's “GPS”

By C. M. Callan
     By now most everyone is familiar with the electronic gadget called a GPS.  GPS stands for Global Positioning System.  This electronic marvel not only tells you were you are on this earth, but it speaks to you in your language as well as showing your position on a map.  It will also give you directions to a new destination that you want to achieve.  It will then give you comments and commands along the way, with detailed instruction on when to turn and what road to take.  No need to stop and ask directions, this little box has the answer.
     It probably does not take a rocket scientist to understand where I am going with this.  What about  “God’s Positioning Scheme?”  God sent this to man long before there were microchips, orbiting satellites (man made) and cell phones.  God’s GPS, not only tells us where we are, it tells us where we need to go and how to get there, and also tells us where mankind has been and how they lost the way.  It speaks to us about our destination through God’s son, Christ Jesus (Hebrews 1:1-2).  After telling us where we need to go and how to get there, it also gives us a glimpse of what it will be like when we arrive (Revelations).
     God’s GPS does not run on batteries, the satellite signal is always on and the roads never change, it is always up to date.  All we have to do is, open its pages and let the inspired words permeate our psyche with profound words of wisdom.   The only maintenance fee is the energy we expend in our studies.  How difficult can that be?  Do you argue with your GPS when you are driving?  Why do we argue with God’s GPS, saying He did not really mean that?
     Want to go to heaven? Get tuned in to God’s Positioning Scheme..
