(From the back cover):

The Routing is a collection of weekly Bible-based tracts that were published by FCG in an effort to promote the Gospel within the factory. They gained popularity and eventually were distributed in five other work places under different mastheads. They were used as study guides in Sunday School in some churches. Volumes 4, 5 & 6 were produced from 1997 - 2000. They are thought - provoking devotionals geared toward both the lost and found.

The Fairfield Christian Group was a fellowship of Bible believing workers in a factory in Indiana from 1993 to the mid 2000's. It consisted of both management and labor (to include one CEO) of various denominations. They considered their work place their corporate mission field and accepted responsibility for the spiritual welfare of the collective, praying for those suffering loss, offering counseling and charitable donations.

Windex makes it shine

Suppose a famous architect drew a picture of the perfect community. Then he built it, and took a photo of it, from the angle that he drew it. Then he built a house on the spot that he took the picture from.

On the wall of the house, he hung the drawing, then the photo, and then placed a window, to view his masterpiece. Then he died. The guy who bought the house, decided that it was too limited. So he hung more pictures, installed windows on different walls, and invited the public to see the famous architect's masterpiece.

But it was a misrepresentation of the architect's work. What you would see if you went there would depend on your personal tastes. Yet amidst all of the counterfeits, and windows that mislead your view, the original works still remained. So if your tastes matched the architect's, you would spot the true beauty.

The perfect community is called the "Kingdom of Heaven." The architect is God. The Old Testament is the picture that He drew to show what He was going to do (Col 2:17, Heb 10:1). He did it, by sending His son, Jesus Christ, to earth, to reveal Himself to us (John 14:7-9). That's the photo, the New Testament (Heb 1:1-3).

By accepting the penalty for our sins on the cross, He, as Jesus, opened a window for us, whereby we can actually see, understand, and have access to, the Kingdom (Heb 10:20). The invitation to view the masterpiece is called the Gospel.

There are a lot of false gospels, which give a misleading view of what God had intended (Gal 3:1). Other religions changed the view, and some alleged Christian leaders as well have added their own pictures to the wall (2 Pet 2:1).

But the truth remains. If you read the Old Testament, you can see what He had in mind. Read the New Testament, and see how He did it. Or go to the window of prayer, and tell Him that you believe what you've read and heard about Him, that His works are perfect, and that He alone is the only true God.

If these are your true feelings, tell Him that you want to change residence from the kingdom of sin and death, to live with Him, as Lord. Through that window, you can see, and enter the Kingdom of God (John 3:3), Absolutely Free.

John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
