Once, when I was in Quebec, Canada, I watched the autoÂ ferry travel back and forth across the St. Laurent River .The boatÂ arrived at the dock near our hotel, drop the ramp, and cars would loadÂ on.
While on the ferry, people had an opportunity to get outÂ of their cars or stay inside. I noticed that some folks mingled withÂ others in a friendly manner. Others just sat in their car for theÂ journey, reading or perhaps contemplating the day ahead. Some entireÂ families got out of their car, and stayed close together. When allÂ these folks arrived on the other side- their destination- the boatÂ jockeyed into position, perfectly aligned for the cars to disembark.
God is my auto ferry. All I had to do to come aboard was to believeÂ Jesus as Godâ€™s son and accept Him as my Savior. I do not need to worryÂ about my destination – for He will take me to the other side ..to myÂ final destination which is heaven.
The question is – how do I spend myÂ time on board? Â That would be the time which God has given me before IÂ reach my eternal resting spot. Am I very social – spreading Godsâ€™ loveÂ and His joy wherever I go? Do I stay isolated, reading Godâ€™s Word andÂ filling myself with spiritual food? Or,do I spend that time only withÂ my family- in a cocoon of security? I believe it is a balance of allÂ three to which God calls me.
I am thankful I have boarded Godsâ€™ ferry. Â Are you on board, too?Â Aren’t we blessed to know where His boat will dock – and where ourÂ final destination is located. Read this story about the little boat. Its a beautiful story about a boy and his little boat.
