Been thinking of going away for a while? At times we make that statement after a question about where we are in life. We all think we need to get away from a place, when in reality we need to get away from ourselves. No matter where you go you’re going to be there and with you.

Been thinking of going away for a while? At times we make that statement after a question about where we are in life. We all think we need to get away from a place, when in reality we need to get away from ourselves. No matter where you go you’re going to be there and with you.

In 1857 our countries war department ordered that a road be built along the 35th parallel of this continent, which became known as “Highway 66”. Did you know the southwest section of the road through the desert, they wanted it to be used for camels as pack animals. In 1927 “US 66” was signed into law, planners intended the highway to connect the main streets of rural and urban communities along the 2,450 miles of roads from Chicago to Los Angeles.

It is only when we have come to the end of ourselves that we truly see where we can go

On June 27th 1985 Route 66 was removed from the United States Highway system. Only some sections are designated a “National Scenic Byway” Called “Historic Route 66”. The number “66” reminds me of another Historic Highway, The Bible. It contains “66” books to direct a person through this highway of life. Disciples of Jesus were called to follow Him, others were following the ones who followed Jesus. Twelve left all their comfortable and familiar surroundings, coming to the end of themselves and only being able to see where their faith in Jesus was leading them. You must have an adventurous attitude toward any destination, despite any potential personal risk.

Discipline is going to have to be maintained as one travels to be separated from the norm. You are going to have to rely on your dependence of a guide, someone who can see the way before you. Now you can follow yourself or someone else, but you’re only going to get as far away from yourself as you’re comfortable with! And you won’t want to go go any further.

In one of the 66 books of the Bible, the book of John chapter 6, Jesus asks those following Him “Do you also want to go away?” Everyone who hears about Jesus will ask themselves this question in their mind, and we will not be free until it is answered.

Do not leave and try to live your highway of life by not following His way, the truth and life, and be marked with this number that is found in John 6: 66. The secret to ride life’s highway with Jesus is to show no concern for the uncertainties that are beyond your comfort zones and be fellow laborers in seeking out uncertain roads that Jesus has already seen you go down, that you haven’t yet.
