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

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
"..And Jesus went
through the cities and villages, teaching and journeying toward

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

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.
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".

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
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
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. -
