“Come to God through the narrow gate, because the wide gate and broad path is the way that leads to destruction —nearly everyone chooses that crowded road! The narrow gate and the difficult way leads to eternal life—so few even find it!”
While going on a home visit in the Philippines, I had to walk through a padi field. I was horrified! The mud path was so narrow that it could only fit one foot. It took a lot of balancing to get through the field. As I took my first step, a scripture came to mind.
“Maureen, can you imagine if you had brought your luggage?” I replied, “Lord, no way can I manage that.” The Lord said, “That’s right…you’ve got to offload and travel light if you want to stay on this narrow path. To keep my balance, I had to concentrate and keep my focus and not be distracted. What a lesson I learnt that day!
Friends, to keep on this narrow path is a choice and it’s not going to be easy. But Jesus tells us that this path leads us to eternal life.
To stay on the Narrow Way:
Keep your eyes on Jesus
It’s a choice you’ll have to make constantly
Travel light (Hebrews 12:1-2)
