Jesus spoke about two roads. One road is wide and there are plenty of people walking on it. It is the attractive route
where there are few restrictions and rules. You simple do as you please. Moral character is not needed nor commitment
or sacrifice required. It is just like taking a stroll down a hill.
This wide, crowded and easy way is the road we were all born on and it always ends in destruction. The Bible says,
“There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death.” (Proverbs 14:12) A drive
down a wide highway may seem pleasant and easy until we come to a road sign, which warns us of danger ahead. Life, like
this highway may seem pleasant and easy but on this ‘broad road’ God in His mercy warns us that this road will end in
great danger and certain destruction.
The other road is narrow and difficult and only a few people travel on this route. This way does not seem very appealing
and it is certainly not very popular compared to the ‘broad road’. However it is the only way that ends in true
everlasting life. If we travel on this ‘narrow road’ throughout life, Jesus promises that when we get to the end of
our journey at death we will go to be with Him in heaven forever.
How do we get onto this ‘narrow road’? We must enter through the ‘narrow gate’. This gate is narrow because you must go
through it alone. You must go as you are to Jesus Christ, who is the only Saviour of the world. The Bible says,
“There is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12).
It is out of great love that Jesus Christ tells us to ‘enter through the narrow gate’ and travel on the narrow road.
Please do not ignore His directions for the end of your life’s journey will certainly end in hell, a place of misery
and destruction. The One and only Saviour warns you of the consequences of your dangerous course. He tells you the
‘narrow gate’ must be found.
Which road are you on? Which way are you heading? Do not delay. Seek for the ‘narrow gate’. Ask the only One who can help you. Your journey may end today.
