"The Crooked Line"
by Pastor Bill

John 14:6 "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me" KJV

The professor walked to the front of the class determined to make his point as quickly and effectively as possible. He asked his 103 students to take one sheet of paper out of their notebooks and place it face up on the desk --- removing everything else from their desk. He then asked each student to take their pen or pencil and draw a cooked line from top to bottom in the middle of the paper. When finished he asked the students to pass the paper to the left all the way to the end of the row.

This was promptly done. He asked his four teaching assistants to pick up the papers at the end of each row. Then compare all the papers and tell him if any of the crooked lines were alike.

In less than 12 minutes from the start of his class the professor heard from his lead teaching assistant. "Sir there definitely is no two crooked lines alike."

Then he once again asked his students to place a piece of paper on the desk removing anything else. He asked them to use any straight edge they could find to draw a straight line from top to bottom in the middle of the page.

Once again he had the papers picked up at the end of the row by the teaching assistants. He asked the head teaching assistant to tell him how many of the straight lines were alike. "Sir all 103 straight lines look alike."

The professor looked out over the entire class with a look of steel and then pointed his finger as if it was piercing the heart of each student and said, "There is a lesson in this. There are many ways to be crooked, but only 1 way to be straight."

And so it is with the Kingdom of God. Many think there are multiple ways to get to heaven. But the Lord Jesus Christ says it clearly for everyone to understand:

"I am the way, the truth, and the life"

The way to heaven is clearly marked. Don't take the crooked route and hope for eternal life. Take the straight path of righteousness through Jesus.
