"Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few." ESV
Our human natures draw us to the wide road, where it is easy, popular, wide enough to allow us to be spiritually comfortable. It gives us space to believe what seems right to us and to decide for ourselves how we should live. In contrast, with God's nature in us, we choose to take the narrow road where it is lonely, difficult, and costly. Very few are attracted to this road and even fewer choose to take it. But it is the Way, the only Way to eternal life with God.
Heavenly Father, we have travelled on the wide road and it is truly easy. But we have learned that it leads to death. We thank You and praise You for providing the Way for us to become new creatures with Your nature so that we have the power to travel this narrow road, this difficult road, that leads us to eternal life with You. In the precious name of Jesus we pray, Amen.
