The Narrow path is…
A high cost
Painful to your flesh
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…
Everybody does it
It’s where you have, the do whatever you want to do attitude
Where YOU rule
Where it is convenient
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.
