WALKING IN THE SPIRIT
"Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it." Matthew 7:13
America is full of roads, streets, paths and detours, but for one to find his way to his desired destination he must have GPS! Religion also has many ways to get to Heaven, or so they say, but there is only One way to eternal life, Jesus, Who is the way, the truth and the life.
In order to traverse the path that leads to life one must not only be born again, but must submit under the Lordship of Christ! Many today claim to be Christians but don't follow Jesus. They go to church, talk the talk, but never walk the walk that leads them to life eternal. The relationship we are to have is like a marriage, having an exclusive Partner just like a husband and wife have of mutual admiration and devotion.
After Jesus spoke of the narrow road He warned us of false prophets who would come to us looking like sheep, but inwardly they are wolves! Today there are multitudes filling the airwaves with pollution and false doctrine even though they proclaim they are believers, but as Jesus said, "They are wolves!"
"Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it." Matthew 7:14
