NARROW IS THE ROAD
TO HEAVEN

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

 

Many times God speaks to us but we do not listen.   Even though God is a God of mercy and love, some of us will turn away and seek the wide road of earthly things because we may think God's narrow path is too difficult to tread.   Some do not consider that the wide and easy road leads to hell.   However, as Christians, know that our Savior Jesus Christ promises to take our hand and walk with us through that dark and narrow path which leads to eternity.

Many try to futilely find life's true meaning in all the wrong places by following others through the wide path which Satan has filled with endless sinful temptation.  Satan wants to gain our souls.

We have only two roads that we must choose from; the wide which leads to Hell and destruction, or the narrow leading to Heaven.  Luke 13:22-30 reads:   "..And Jesus went through the cities and villages, teaching and journeying toward Jerusalem. Then one said to Him, “Lord, are there few who are saved?”  And He said to them,  “Strive to enter through the narrow gate, for many, I say to you, will seek to enter and will not be able."

Jesus explicitly speaks of two destinies for us.   Choosing the wide road for human satisfaction that God says "No!" to will lead to eternal Hell.   And there is the narrow path leading to eternal joy where we will live in glory with God and our Savior, Jesus Christ.  As Christian Catholics, the latter must be our choice. 

Have you come to a crossroad in your life and you cannot decide which road to take?

If you believe in Jesus Christ, our Savior, you must decide your path: the wide which offers the gifts of sin and disobedience to God or the narrow, seemingly endless road.  Sometimes it may be difficult to walk the path God has for us but Jesus tells us it is the only way we can live forever, secure in the arms of Almighty God, our Heavenly Father, Who beckons us to follow Him to endless Glory.  This must be our decision.

Sometimes we see others showing their successes, their wealth and all Satan has to offer, and it makes us wonder why we always seem to get "the short end of the stick".  Their successful lives and seemingly happy families make us feel "left out" and unworthy of "good things they are enjoying".  And though we strongly believe in God, our humanity whispers we have no real value and our lives becomes hard to bear.  We become so obsessed with watching the good fortune of others that we fail to see the blessings that the Lord has already bestowed to us.

If you have taken God's hand to let him guide you through His Divine Path, don't allow worries, setbacks, human mistakes, failure, and disappointment tear you down and turn you in the other direction.  Be firm, knowing that this path defines who you are, and where you are headed.  Remember always that God’s only provision for our salvation and entrance to the kingdom is through faith in Jesus Christ as our Messiah and Savior Who paid for all our sins.  No matter what you are going through at this time, believe that God loves you and has great plans for your eternal future.  Be steady in your choices, hold tight to the reigns that God has set for you.  You are a child of the Most High and this qualifies that all who believe in God are special to Him.  He will always remain true to His promises. 

As believers, know that the road He designed for us is leading us home to eternal life.  One day, we will be able to see Almighty God our Heavenly Father, and Jesus Christ, the Lord of Lords Who paid the price for all believers.  They will be standing before us in all their magnificent glory, waiting to take us home where we will live forever in their Kingdom. 

No more suffering and no more dying.  AMEN!!

 


You make known to me the path of life; You will fill me
with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at
Your Right Hand.  -
Psalm 16:11
