GOD’S NARROW ROAD

“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life and only a few find it.” - Matthew 7:13-14 New International Version
    I liken the narrow way to heaven as a one lane road going in one direction. I’m not aware of any verses in scripture that speak of it being a two-way road with people coming and going, while I am certain that if someone had it in their mind to pull a U-Turn, I don’t believe God would stop them. I see it more as a single lane road heading in one direction with a shoulder for rest and exit ramps providing many opportunities to pull off on a tangent, at times far from God’s chosen path. Free will allows for that.
     The roadway to hell is paved with the lives of those who strove to please themselves and accumulate and achieve as much as they possibly could. They became wealthy and perhaps even influential, but in the end were left an empty shell with no substance. There is a reason Christ came and it was not to provide those who believe in Him with riches and power and influence. It was not to aid us in our climb up the ladder of business and financial success. These things cannot buy you ANYTHING that is lasting and certainly nothing that is eternal. People strive and strain for what turn out to be all the wrong things, never thinking to seek God or his will.
     What is most important to you? What have you made your top priority? If it isn’t the Lord, then you are wasting valuable time that can never be recovered. The narrow road may be long, winding and difficult at times, but in the end you will never be dissatisfied with where you end up. Trust God to fulfill His promises from scripture and have faith that you will always be provided for with just exactly what you need, when you need it. And then thank him for his incredible patience, grace and mercy toward us. Until next time, walk with the King and be a blessing!
