“The Narrow Way”
Our oldest two sons learned to drive in PA, the younger two in Indiana. The roads where we live in Indiana are straight and relatively wide. In PA, it is tough to find a straight road, and the trees and roadside weeds and grasses make the roads seem incredibly narrow. The youngest two wondered aloud how we ever learned to drive on those narrow, crooked roads.
Please read the following verses. Luke 13:22-30
22 Then Jesus went through the towns and villages, teaching as he made his way to Jerusalem. 23 Someone asked him, “Lord, are only a few people going to be saved?”He said to them, 24 “Make every effort to enter through the narrow door, because many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able to. 25 Once the owner of the house gets up and closes the door, you will stand outside, knocking and pleading, ‘Sir, open the door for us.'”But he will answer, ‘I don’t know you or where you come from.’ 26 “Then you will say, ‘We ate and drank with you, and you taught in our streets.’ 27 “But he will reply, ‘I don’t know you or where you come from. Away from me, all you evildoers!’ 28 “There will be weeping there, and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, but you yourselves thrown out. 29 People will come from east and west and north and south, and will take their places at the feast in the kingdom of God. 30 Indeed there are those who are last who will be first, and first who will be last.”
Yes, there are two distinct paths on this earth: the wide and easy way, the narrow and more difficult path.
Left to our own devices, man will choose the path of least resistance. This is not good. The Lord God will send us His Spirit to help us make the journey on the more difficult path, the less-traveled path.
If you find yourself going with the flow of the world, please apply your brakes. Pray to the Lord God and ask for His assistance to walk on the path where He wants you. Encourage others you know to accompany you on this trip through life.
You all have a tremendous day in the Lord,
Let everything that has breath (this includes you) Praise and thank the Lord.
Be a Blessing;
