No matter how long we contend, no matter how sincerely we persuade, there are only two destinations; and we will all end up in one or the other. It just so happens that one destination, or road, is wide and easily traveled while the other is narrow and sometimes difficult (Matthew 7:13-14). Satan has placed the carnal mind in a state of resentment and defiance so that it can no longer rationalize. His intentions are to relieve man of his sanity and to bring him into that place of hopelessness and utter depravity. We all begin at the same place, upon the wide road; but, if we are alert, we will soon discover that the other road is the best one to travel. The narrow road is the only road that will take us to a desirable destination; it is the only road that will take us unto our Creator. To do it right, we need to be traveling with a companion and not alone; we need to have a navigator or someone that knows the road and knows where we are going. Of course, if we have chosen wisely, that navigator will be none other than Jesus. He is the only one that can get us to a place of full enjoyment, a place of peace and rest.
“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it” (Matthew 7:13-14).
