The purpose of this life is only found in Jesus. One’s journey will be weighed in the light of this one measure. True success lies in this outcome. Likewise, true failure is found in any path that does not lead to God’s own Son.
As it is written, the path that leads to life is narrow. Broad is the path that leads to death. All are on one path or the other. The path taken determines the destination, whether beginning or end.
