Find the Narrow Road

13 Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it. Matthew 7:13-14NIV

If you knew that you only had two roads to choose from in life and you had to choose one to follow, would you like to know about them? How would you go about choosing?

Jesus makes it clear there are only two roads you can travel through this life on, the narrow road and the broad road.  So, what is the difference between these two roads, and how do we get on one or the other? I’m glad you asked.

Look at what Jesus said in v 13: …For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. It seems to me that the broad road is the default road. In other words, it is where everyone starts from. You don’t have to do anything special or different; it’s the default road. It is the most beautiful road. It is the easiest road. It is the biggest road. And contrary to what Texas might believe, bigger is not always better. Yes, it might be easier, you don’t even have to look for it, cause it’s just there, but it’s definitely not better.

For the Broad Road, there are huge lanes you can drive on making it feel good. But Jesus said at the end of it is destruction.

The other gate is small, and the road is narrow; therefore, it makes it unappealing. Not only that, but one has to look for it. Did you see that? It said only a few find it. Therefore, you have to look for it, or you won’t find it. And many are not looking for it. Very few people, if any, can say they just happened to stumble upon the small gate. They either have to be looking, as in the case with Lee Strobel. In his own testimony, he admitted that he was an atheist and set out to prove the Bible wrong and Jesus not who he said he was. But he had a praying wife, and so, the facts lead him to the small gate that leads to the narrow road.

For the Narrow Road, you have to be looking, or searching, or somebody has to be praying really hard for you.

This narrow road, we have to make sure we are on it. We can’t fool around and make a mockery of salvation. It was a heavy price Jesus paid for it. Not only that, we who are saved should and must be telling others about the goodness of God. For He has been faithful to us, now let us be faithful to Him.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Find the Narrow Road.
