Wide Road and Narrow Road, Wide Path and Narrow Path
Matthew 7:13,14 "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. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it."
Man becomes wrapped up in a world of pleasures, and it is not a convenient time to consider his salvation or eternal destiny, where he shall end up.
Another is occupied with his business or with the cares of life; hopes of gaining or advancing himself with his career or profession, and convinces himself it is not now a convenient time for him to consider his religious needs.
Another believes that this time of life is not the most convenient. In his youth he desires to spend on pleasures, and waits for a more convenient time in middle age. His middle life he spends in business, and this is not a convenient time. Such a period he expects then to find in old age. But as age advances he finds he increasingly desires to put it off; still in love with the world. Even old age is seldom found to be a convenient time to prepare for heaven; and puts it off just a little longer, until death closes the scene and then it is too late.
There are many on the wide road or wide gate but in the end there will be an existence without God in a place the Bible calls Hell. Few find themselves on the narrow road or going by way of the narrow gate.Luke 13:27 says, Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. The Bible tells us to 'strive' that is how important it is for our eternal life the find and receive Jesus so that when we leave here we will spend eternity with Him in Heaven.
There really is no other option, Heaven or Hell, which road are you on, which gate are you passing through. Hebrews 9:27 says, And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
Which road or path are you on; is it the road to Heaven or the road to Hell.
