Which Way Are You Going?

Some may say there are many roads that lead to heaven, but the Word of God teaches that there is only one way...the narrow way. “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." Matthew 7:13-14 

I John 2:15-17, “Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world–the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life–is not of the Father but is of the world.” That's the broad way. It is called broad because so many, many people travel this way and adopt this lifestyle. It is the predominate lifestyle of the entire human race.

The narrow way is called narrow because so few people take this way and adopt the godly lifestyle. Jesus said few there be that find it. Why ? Because they prefer the broad way to the narrow way. Jesus didn't make one road broad and the other narrow. No, the human race made these determinations and Jesus just expressed the fact. In the scope of the human population, few people in every generation choose the narrow way that leads to life.

It's always good to examine our own lives, and see which path we are taking - the broad way or the narrow way?  Which way am I going? Which way are you going?  The narrow way isn't always easy, but it's always worth it.  The reward of eternal life in Heaven is worth it.  To be with God and Jesus forever is worth it.  

What a wonderful plan He made for His children! Thank you, God!

Very thought provoking! I think many end up on the broad way because Satan has made it so appealing. It's hard to escape but all things are possible through Him!
