Wabush, a town in a remote portion of Labrador, Canada, was completely isolated for many years. Finally a road was cut through the wilderness to reach it. Wabush now has one road leading into it, and only one road leading out. If someone were to travel the unpaved road for six to eight hours to get into Wabush, there is only way he or she could leave: by turning around.
Each of us, through our wrong choices, arrives in a place called Sin. Once in Sin, we are trapped and doomed (Romans 6:23), unless we find a way out. As in Wabush, there is only one way out: a road built by God himself. Jesus said in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” Through His atoning sacrifice, we find the way out of Sin and into a new and living way” out of Sin into the Most Holy Place (Hebrews 10:19-20).
But in order to take that road, one must first turn around. That complete about-face is what the Bible calls REPENTANCE, and without it, there’s no way out of town.
Jesus said: “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.” – (Matthew 7:13-14) There is only One way out of Sin and that is His Way!
