Which Way Are we Going?

I came upon this staircase recently, take a quick look…

You can see from the photo that it leads to a dark and shadowy world down there, but what you can’t tell from the photo whether I’m looking forward to my destination or backward to where I’ve been.

Hmmm…

Any one of us may find ourselves in a spot like this on any given day; are we going back or moving forward?

Temptations are all around us and they often exert a pull on us; do we follow them down the stairs or shall we turn our backs on them and move forward?

See to it, brothers, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God.  But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness.  We have come to share in Christ if we hold firmly till the end the confidence we had at first.

Hebrews 3:12-14

Do we descend those stairs back into darkness?

No way!
