THE NARROW PATH ,,,,,,

Recommended Posts

Of much teaching on this ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

"and there are few who find it"  Mathew 7 : 13

NOT BECAUSE IT IS HIDDEN,,,,,,  FOR INDEED IT IS LIGHT UP LIKE CHRISTMAS,,,,,,,, BRIGHT IS THE LIGHT ON THIS PATH...

But in sin our view of it is heavy blurrrrrrrred, hidden from us,  and once we find this path our greatest fear is turning off it.

We don't need to strive ;  as in this path is rest peace love and the best possible life while we remain here.

Sounds simple and friends I believe it is...

If I may speak on this also??

I have a feeling this fear, or insecurity, is what Paul is addressing  with;

2 Timothy 1:12b (KJV)
~~~~~~~for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.

Though I can’t say I understand it, it just seems this situation is what he’s addressing. 

(my pondering)

Blessings, 

Much love in Christ, Not me

Jesus is the door through which all enter eternal life. Entering the narrow gate is not easy. Like a running athlete straining towards the finish line. No amount of effort saves us. Salvation is by the grace of God. The reason it is difficult is because there is so much human pride, our natural love of sin and our love of the world.

It's been said that the Christian walk is "easy to do the hard way and hard to do the easy way"

If we come at the kingdom without a full consecration and effort...then we will find that we are constantly in a battle to listen for God and do as the Spirit directs us. We will miss many opportunities. Wisdom dictates that we rely on the fear of the Lord to keep us on the strait and narrow path at this level of consecration. This is the easy to do it the hard way method.

But if we come fully to God with a whole heart and a willing mind...we may just be allowed into the easy walk of the Spirit where the burden of Jesus becomes light. With grace there are no guarantees of course. Each of us must be inspected by God...there is no law that makes God conform to an acceptance of us for mechanical observance. God looks on the heart. This is the hard to do it easy way.

Most people will do the former since it is indeed very difficult even seemingly impossible for many to God to God with a full surrender to His will. Few can give themselves to that amount...ALL. But only THAT amount will afford us the full grace of the keeping power of God.

 

So whether we find the walk easy or hard we are to keep to the narrow path and be productive with the grace we have been given.

Yes! 

I think the following verse is the key. People assume heaven is a place, and that we have to wait till we die to go there. Therefore, they don’t see any hurry to repent, so they don’t. But we can’t understand until we repent: 

From that time Jesus began to preach, saying, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand." Matt 4:17 RSV

God must reveal who Jesus is for us to believe, and the narrow path that leads to eternal life requires obedience.  Few believe and less obey.

Greetings, Kevana … I love the following scripture…


“You will show me the path of life: in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore.” Psalm 16:11.
