A gentleman was driving in his car through a town in Renfrew-shire, Scotland, the town of Kilmacolm, and stopped to hail a roadmender and ask him please to tell him the way to Glasgow. After giving him explicit directions, the roadmender asked, 'Excuse me, sir, but do you know the way to Heaven?' 'No, I don't,' replied the gentleman in the car. 'Jesus said, "I am the Way",' said the roadmender. Thanking him, the man drove on to Glasgow, turning over in his mind the roadmender's words. On his return to London, the same man was involved in a fatal road accident, and taken to hospital where, after arranging his affairs, he died. Ten days later two young men wearing black ties, and in deep mourning, arrived in the town of Kilmacolm, enquiring for a roadmender who, as a witness for the Lord Jesus Christ, had told their father the way to Heaven. He had commissioned them to take the journey after the funeral service was over, and to thank the Christian roadmender for pointing out the way to Heaven when he showed their father the way to Glasgow: 'and,' they added, 'he understood and is now in Heaven.'
(John 14. 6)
