My human nature draws me to the wide road where it is
easier, more popular--where it's wide enough to allow me
to be spiritually comfortable. It gives me space to believe
what seems right to me and decide for myself where I want
God to be in my life, if at all. With God's Nature in me, I chase
after the narrow road where it's lonely, difficult, and costly.
Very few are attracted to this road and even fewer choose to
seek it, even though it is the Way, the only Way to eternal
life with God.

Heavenly Father, we have travelled on the wide road and it is
easy. But this road leads to death. We thank you and praise
you that you provided the way for us to become new creatures
with your nature so that we can travel the narrow road, the
difficult road, that leads us to eternal life with you. In Jesus'

Read Matthew 7:13,14

"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." (NIV)

"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: Because strait is the gate,
and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few
there be that find it." (KJV)

Very few do find it. I pray that we can lead someone to that road...

Thanks be to God.

Where did you get that picture? That's pretty awesome. I'd love to know who the artist is.

I've had a vision before that I'm in a jubilant crowd headed towards Heaven's gates and I struggled and struggled to get out of the flow and finally stumbled out and with a few others and found the narrow entrance. It's so easy to get comfortable and very difficult to continually serve and not find ourselves sleeping, for God said in Isiah 31:25 "I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint.”
