Yesterday I asked, “Which path are you traveling?” The narrow path is taken by few.
Believers are not “few” because the gate is too “narrow.” There is no limit to the number
who can go through. There is no housing shortage in heaven.
II Peter 3:9 says God is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but
that all should come to repentance.
The path is taken by “few” means it’s much easier to flow along the wide path than to
give your life to Christ.
Jesus admonishes us to enter at the strait or narrow gate. Why? Because when people
do come to Jesus, like Robert Frost’s poem of last week, they find the “road not taken”
makes all the difference. But why would everyone not want to follow Jesus?
Unbelievers maintain an attitude that the message of the cross is foolishness and a
Paul says in I Corinthians 1:18, For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish,
foolishness. We don’t like to look foolish, be called foolish, or even act foolish.
Tomorrow we will examine this word “foolishness” in greater detail.
Be reminded that in today’s verse, we find life in a belief system that is all about Christ
and what He has done for each one of us. However, MOST of the world rejects or has
never heard about Jesus Christ. Please don’t be one of those people.
I am the resurrection and the life. He that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.
