You can enter God's Kingdom only through the narrow gate. The highway to hell is broad, and its gate is wide for the many who choose that way. - NLT Matthew 7:13
We live in a world that accepts mediocrity and very few people live for and desire to follow Christ. The path that leads to heaven is the path that has fewer travelers, but the reward is indescribable and worth pursuing. Many times when we hear that the path and gate to Heaven is narrow it scares us. Like it’s a tight rope that we have to walk on and if we fall off we are going to hell. We will all make mistakes and if we ask for forgiveness God is more than willing to forgive us. You see the reason the path and gate to Heaven is narrow is because not many will choose the path that leads to Christ. In other words, there is no need for a wide path or wide gate when there are not very many people on the path. We are all called to be different and live a life set apart for Christ. It’s time to go against the grain of the world and take a different path. It’s time to take the path less traveled. Pray today that you would be different for Christ and God would give you the strength to travel the path that leads to Him.
