Why does the jaywalker cross the street?

I can hear it already…”to get to the other side.”  I know.  I know.

The jaywalker jaywalks because he wants to beat the system.  He feels he is more important than the law.  He is in charge; he is the boss; he writes the rules.  No, he doesn’t.

When the jaywalker crosses the road, he incurs a certain danger—the risk of being killed or severely injured.  The jaywalker jaywalks until he gets splattered or he gets caught by the law.  (Whether he likes it or not, there is a higher power.  He does not make the rules—God does.)  When he gets hit, the chicken in so many words, has come home to roost.  The jig is up.

We must cross at the Light, the controlled intersection, the crosswalk.  The purpose of the light and the crosswalk is to give us a safe, stress free environment to cross the street.  When we obey and cross the street at the crosswalk, we are protected and free from stress, danger and possible death.

Are you a jaywalker believing you are above God’s law and man’s law?  Are you so self-centered that you believe the world revolves around you?  It doesn’t.  It doesn’t!

Come to the Light—cross in peace.  Obey; it’s the only way.  It brings freedom.

Romans 8:1-2 says:  Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death.”
