Matthew 7:14 NASB "For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few."As I followed him, I wasn't sure if we would get there! I was asked to go fishing with a friend but little did I know that the path we took was going to be that hard! Today's verse shares about the gate being narrow and the way hard that leads to life, very few find it! He kept saying that the journey to get to his fishing spot was going to be worth it! The path there was narrow, and the way was hard, just like today's verse but once we got there, the fishing was excellent and we spent hours enjoying catching and releasing many lunkers! No one ever said that life would be easy and most will find that coming to know Christ as Lord and Savior will have its trouble along the way. We will have to give up our old self, maybe lose some friends along the way, give up some of the earthly things we like to do, give up all our idols but the path will lead to life, ever lasting life! What journey are we on, one that is easy and leads no where or the one that leads to life? peace, tom
