The Road That Leads to Life (2008)

What is the road that leads to life? A clue lies in Jesus’ admonition, “Unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 5:20). God puts this righteousness in the heart and life of a humble, surrendered believer.

So how do you walk out this road that leads to life? First, you begin with repentance and surrender to Jesus. God is then free to gift you with righteousness. Then, you must continue to surrender to Jesus. After you’re converted, the Holy Spirit will give you greater light on areas of life to give to Jesus. To stay on the road to life, you need to keep giving these areas to Jesus–as soon as you become aware of them. Otherwise, if you withhold from Jesus, you jeopardize your salvation.
