About The Crossroad
Welcome, fellow traveler and pilgrim, to The Crossroad, which is always found at the corner of Now and Here - right where you are. In this world as it stands in its appearance, this location may be mistaken instead for Nowhere. But there are different and far more inviting, although perhaps mysterious, ways to comprehend it, approach it, and walk the spiritual journey to which every human being is invited by the Lord Jesus Christ.
This Crossroad where we find ourselves is not for the faint of heart, yet it is for the world weary. It is the true road less travelled - an assignment which, if you choose to accept it, leads to a glorious destination.
Since you have found your way to the corner of Now and Here, the intersection between time and eternity where we meet, it has to be said at the outset, that this is the Crossroad Jesus was pointing out when He said, "... If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it. For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away?" (Luke 9:23-25)
This Crossroad, as you can see, is one of paradox, where saving means losing, where seeking to be advantaged means to be lost and to be cast away.
"Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it." These also are Jesus' solemn words (Matthew 7:14), and they are not easy words to hear for any who take for granted the Grace of God.
"The Cross before me, the world behind me," is the line from an old song called, "I Have Decided To Follow Jesus". And this is exactly where we find ourselves! Right here and now. If we picture ourselves at an intersection, it's very much the pattern of the Cross.
These pages in the days ahead are intended to reflect, in a variety of expressions, what it means to walk this Crossroad with the Lord Jesus Christ. For the Crossroad is the path of discipleship, and it is destined to lead us, with the Holy Spirit's guidance, comfort, and wisdom, to an unimaginably glorious destiny!
Shall we walk this road as companions in Christ?
May the grace and strength of Christ accompany you on your journey,
