Narrow Path vs. Broad Path

narrow path image

The Narrow path is…

Hard

Difficult

A high cost

Painful to your flesh

Not popular

Not convenient

Most of the time, NOT easy

Where you have to continually yield and know your life is NOT your own

Where you have to submit and stayed focus on eternity

Focused on storing up your treasures in Heaven

Whereas, the broad path is…

Easy

Popular

Everybody does it

It’s where you have, the do whatever you want to do attitude

Where YOU rule

Where it is convenient

Instant gratification

Focused on the here and now

Storing up your treasures here on earth though, this is where thieves break in and steal, moth and rust destroy, and where when you die your treasure stays right here, for the righteous to ultimately receive (see Proverbs 13:22).

Yet, on the broad path there’s deception, a path leading straight to destruction,

A path of judgment.

On this path, this is where the wrath of God is.

Yes, for those who just play church, they’ll hear Jesus say, “I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!” (Matthew 7:23)

However on the narrow path, you have (past), you are (present) and you shall have (future) life and peace, being shalom, the peace that the world did not give, so this peace, the world cannot take (see John 14:27), and most importantly, eternity in the age to come.

Therefore let’s all DO aim to be and stay on the NARROW PATH.
