WHICH WAY ARE YOU, BROAD OR NARROW?

“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:”

Matt. 7:13KJV“`

The kind of life that we are living now is the only answer to this question, it can’t be answered verbally. I may say I’m on the narrow path while my life will prove me wrong. This is the record that is given of the bad way of sin, and the good way of holiness. There are but two ways, right and wrong, good and evil; the way to heaven, and the way to hell; in the one of which we are all of us walking: no middle place hereafter, no middle way now: the distinction of the children of men into saints and sinners, godly and ungodly, will swallow up all to eternity.

Our Lord Jesus first beckons us to enter the straight gate and then went on and gave us the reasons why we should enter therein;
That there is another gate which is widely open for all kinds of sinful act, lust and desires. Here, you live in the abundance of liberty of the world, walk according to your heart, will and sight. Satan and His demons are the shepherds of this gate. They cordially invite men and usher them into Hell. Yes, many are already there, and many too are on their way. But which way am I? Well, my life will tell. Because many had forsaken the high way of holiness, which is purity inside-out, and says that once they’ve accepted Christ, it doesn’t matter how they live their life or adorn themselves, they will still make it to that sinless country, therefore, they are lured, either ignorantly or willingly into the path of destruction. Though they’ve accepted Christ, thus, to be in straight gate, yet they’re on the broad way.

The fact is, beloved, the straight gate, where Jesus is the shepherd, cannot and can never allow anything worldly into that way. It’s either you are with the multitude or the few. It’s either you’re on the path to hell or heaven. It’s either you’re gathering with Jesus or Satan. It’s either you’re with the world or with the word. There’s absolutely no middle way. Even if you are 90percent Jesus and 10percent devil, you are still on the way to destruction. God’s standard is set; the high way of holiness, righteousness and truthful living. He can’t lower His standards for any reasons. If you can lower yours, then that’s to the detriment of your own soul.

ARE YOU ON THE NARROW WAY?

“Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
Matt. 7:14KJV

Many pass along the wrong way because the right way requires determination and self denial. Everyone seems to claim his or her own right to do what the heart wills. Everybody wants to be at liberty to choose at will. There is no way you can excuse yourself that you diligently searched for the straight gate and narrow way but couldn’t find. Our Lord Jesus said in the very same chapter that you should “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened”. Unfortunately, many are not seeking for they know of surety that they aren’t ready to stop the kind of lives they are living now for the devoted life of Christ. So they won’t even bother to seek and find. Only the few are able to knock at the strait gate to be opened unto them and seek the narrow way to find it.

Even among the few, the fewest are able to walk in this narrow way to that glorious city. Dear, we shouldn’t follow the majority, for the Truth is always with the minority. Am I on this narrow way? My life will answer. May be you’ve known Christ as the Way, dive deeper into His words to find the Truth in Him so you can enter the everlasting Life. The highway of holiness is still narrow, full of self denials, selfless life and daily taking up your cross and following Christ.

Yes there are thorns on this way that will prick you and even jab your life so much that you may be discouraged to return to Egypt, the world, but that’s the only way Christ paved for us with His holy blood. And besides, he hadn’t wished us a safer way, but a safe journey. He didn’t say we wouldn’t suffer, he said His grace will always be sufficient enough to keep us moving in Him to the end. Has He not promised us to be with us till the end of this world? Let all come to the knowledge of Him and run to the narrow way which leads to Heaven and we shall have our eternal rest there .
