The Narrow Gate

READ:   Matthew 7:13-14 You can enter God's Kingdom only through the narrow gate.  The highway to hell is broad, and it's gate is wide for the many who choose that way.  But the gateway to life is very narrow and the road is difficult, and only a few ever find it. 

Imagine with me for a minute that you are walking along a road.  You come to an area where the road begins to split.   There are two gates.  One gate leads to a wide, smooth road.  The other gate leads to a rough terrain, narrow road.  Which road will you choose?   

What is the meaning of the two roads?  The Word of God tells us that there are two pathways: 

  • Broad - leads to hell 
  • Narrow - leads to life (Heaven) 

We have a choice to make as we go through life.   We can choose to live for the world, trying to fit in, and ultimately living in a way that we "know" is contrary to Word of God.  - OR - We can chose to live for Jesus and walk that narrow road that leads to ETERNAL LIFE.  

For the one who has accpted Christ as Savior - the narrow road is not an easy one to walk.  Often times you will face persecution, ridicule, and many times feel as though you have no friends.   But rest assured - your reward is GREAT.  You will spend eternity with Jesus forever.... and ever.... and ever... and ever.    You also have a promise for now that Jesus will be with you - empowering you and walking with you each day!   

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9

For the one who is reading this and knows that they are walking the wide path - fitting in with friends and living a life contrary to what they know is right.... and you feel the Lord Jesus tugging at your heart this moment.... ask Jesus to be your Savior and Lord and turn from that wide path - - to the narrow one.  Please take a moment to contact me below (completely private) and I will pray with you.    


We get ONE CHANCE in life to get on the right path.     ONLY ONE.     THIS IS YOUR DAY!!        

Now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation, 2 Corinthians 6:2
