Thought For Today - November 9
What is your compass?

    We are told by men of experience in seamanship and navigation of the importance of a compass on a dark night or in a dense fog on the high seas. When upon the ocean billows a ship is floundering in a storm, and the fog is so thick that you cannot hardly see a hand before you, some times you get to wonder whether or not you can or should trust your compass. It seems at times that the needle is pointing in the wrong direction from what you think to be right; but the wise seaman will have first checked his compass before he launches out into the unknown. When he is far from home and from land, if he is wise, he will follow the direction that the compass indicates as its' faithful needle points to the true north reference point.
    My dear friend whoever you may be, we are on a broad uncharted ocean of life, lost and not having any sense of direction nor knowledge of how to find our desired haven until we accept the Word of God, which has been tried and found to be true, as our compass..  Simply by taking the teaching of the Word of God and obeying its' laws and principles by faith, just because God said it, we must believe it and follow it to guide us safely home. Our compass tells us that the way home to heaven is by way of the cross. There is no other way. Broad is the way that leads to destruction but narrow is the way that leadeth unto life eternal.
    "Jesus Christ is the way, the truth and the life, no man cometh unto the father but by him."
    Weary sailor are you lost in the fog, unhappy, depressed, discouraged, fearfully tossed on the sea of life, desiring eternal and everlasting life, and seeking heaven but not knowing where to find it? You have at your disposal a compass which has been tried and is true, the Holy Bible, the divinely inspired Word of God. It points to the true reference point for all of life, the Lord Jesus Christ. It tells us how we are sinners from birth and without hope in the world, and that we all have sinned against God and are condemned to die, but it also tells us of how Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners. He died for our sins, was buried, and rose again the third day, all according to the scriptures, so that we might by faith receive him as our savior, and allow him to lead us safely home.
