Broad Is The Road

Matthew 7:13
“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it." NIV

Have you ever ended up somewhere that you never intended to arrive?  Speaking of an adventerous roadtrip to points unknown, this situation could be invigorating and fun; although conversely, when it comes to sin, you will find yourself wishing you stayed home.  Jesus understands that it is human nature to take the path of least resistance, this broad road will lead you to destruction.  Jesus is the narrow gate that leads to heaven.  Try as we might, there is no other way to reach God.   Jesus speaks of Himself in John 10:1, “Very truly I tell you Pharisees, anyone who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate, but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber"(NIV).  Don't allow yourself to be sidetracked and hijacked into taking some other avenue.  Jesus not only is life and the Way to life, He is the guiding factor Who will keep us traveling on the right path.  In John 10:7-10 the thought is continued, "Therefore Jesus said again,'Very truly I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep.  All who have come before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep have not listened to them.  I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full'" (NIV). 
The offer of salvation was bought for us by the blood of Christ, I pray that you accept it and enter through that narrow gate and allow Him to lead you home.

Lord, In Jesus name I pray that You lead us in all truth to the destination that is Your will for each of us.  Please enable us to relate to others with love and compassion as You do.  Please keep us on track by Your grace.  Love You.
