There are two eternal paths in life. One headed to eternity with God and one headed to an eternity separated from God.
“Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.”
– Matt 7.13-14
Often times we follow the whims and instructions of the world and just hope that God will be gracious to us in the end, or we hope that we have been good enough to merit Heaven and not Hell. But Jesus says that the gate is narrow, and if we do not intentionally seek it out we will not find it. We must intentionally walk the straight and narrow in order to be on it.
So do you know that you are on it? If you do not know, then you are not. But you can know, and the answer is Jesus.
“If we don’t change the direction we are headed, we will end up where we are going.”
– John Picoult
Results are the end of what we do. The result of uncertainty is Hell. The result of knowing and walking with Jesus is Heaven. You will get wherever you are headed, so let’s get on the path with Jesus.
