Tonight we're going to start by watching a clip from the film Trains,
planes and automobiles
This film is about two guys who are desperately trying to get home for
Christmas...but things keep going wrong...
[Trains, planes and automobiles]
0 hr 56 min - (note if you start with the volume down, you'll mute the swearing)
1 hr 00 min - the car catches fire and they start laughing
Has anybody ever been on a journey that went badly wrong?
Have you ever got lost?
When we're going on a journey, most of us would prepare...decide where we
are going, when and how
Despite that, things don't always go according to plan...
In a way, this is a little bit like life...because whether we like it or
not, we're all heading some where
The question is where?
Where do you think this life leads to?
What kind of things go wrong?
So we're all on a journey...the Bible speaks of this too...
The Bible tells us that our lives will lead to one of two places...
One path leads to God
Another takes us further away from God
Matthew 7:13-19 "Enter through the narrow gate. The gate is wide and the road is wide
that leads to hell, and many people enter through that gate. But the
gate is small and the road is narrow that leads to true life. Only
a few people find that road."
So which Path / gate do you think leads to God?
The hard one / narrow gate
The question is which path are you on?
Maybe you don't know...we all get lost...
The great thing is that God is always there for us, and show us the way
He also given us a map - the Bible
That's why we give them to you when you've been coming here for a while,
because we believe that you will find the answers to many of the big questions
in this book
To finish, I talk about how to use your Bible....
