Christ frees us from lawless violence.

Football fans were hurrying through the congested traffic to the stadium, situated on the outskirts of the city. Cars and lorries, bumper to bumper, loaded with hilarious spectators, tooted their horns. A supporter of the visiting team, not quite sure of his whereabouts, asked a traffic warden, "Am I right for the football match?" The warden pointed to a sign which, with an arrow, had the words "ONE WAY" written on it, and cheerily urged him, "Keep straight on."

When one is visiting a strange town or city, it is easy to consult a street plan or a policeman to find such places as the market, the coach park, the railway station, the town hall, a church, or a hotel. But now consider our pilgrimage through life. There may be times when we reach a crossroads, and we have no map or signpost to guide us. Is there one way that is really the only right route to our destination? Are we on the right road? Who can advise us?

Christianity teaches us that Christ is our guide on our journey through life. The question is, Where and how can we find Christ? The New Testament gives a clear answer. The Apostle John recounts that once Christ Jesus told his disciples he was going to his Father to prepare a place for them and that he knew that they, too, would eventually arrive there. Asked, "How can we know the way?" Jesus replied for all time, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
