Off The Main Trail

There is a main linear path that one must ultimately keep. However it is equally vital to veer of the major trail to venture on side tracks. These are not distractions at all. They are indeed essential to enhance the overall journey. On the road to the Cross, Jesus shows how this is rightly done. It began at the onset of His ministry with the incident at the wedding. He did not originally purpose to turn water into wine, yet in His flexibility He performs the miracle. While Jesus rests at the well in Samaria, the encounter takes place with the Samaritan woman that in turn leads to the enlightening of an entire village. In another place, the woman with the internal bleeding reaches out to touch the hem of Jesus garment. The healing virtue flowed from Him to heal her. This is a side road. He is summoned by a Roman centurion to come to his house and heal his servant. Jesus does not leave the path in this occasion, but provides the petition via the supernatural word. When he hears of the death of Lazarus, he delays 4 days in side paths as it were. All this and much more is in perfect sync with the Divine Father. Many wonders may wait off the main trail. One is not to stay on the side roads, only visit them for varying amounts of time. The multitudes may see you on the main tract, but there are important lessons to learn off the main trail.
