Mountain Path

   Enter ye in at the strait gate for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction and many there be which go thereat because strait is the gate and narrow is the way which leadeth unto life and few there be that find it Matthew 7:13-14
   Now I want you all to think for a moment. If you are going on a climb up a mountain and there are 2 roads one is wide and paved and very easy to walk on , the other is a rough rocky narrow path. On the wide path you will not see much of the beauty it is rather dull and drab, on the rough path you will see the beauty of the trees the flowers, the brook rushing down.
   Now for the majority of people they will choose the easier walking road. A few will choose the harder path. Now think of the mountain as your life. As we start at the bottom of the mountain we don't know where it leads. We all start on the wide road. However there are places on the wide road where we can choose to leave it for the more difficult path. Sometimes these places come in childhood, sometimes later on in life. Each one of these places where we choose which path to continue on this mountain is where we are offered the chance to live our life with Jesus. If we choose to then we venture off the easy road onto the harder path. At each crossroad there is a road sign that says the harder path leads to eternal life the easier to eternal punishment.
   We must choose at each cross road which we want to follow. We have no knowledge that there will be an additional crossroad ahead. If we choose to stay on the easy path we are risking it all. There may not be another chance to take the road to eternal life. We do not know how far the road will go until it ends. Some mountains are shorter than others. That is another chance we take.
   My question to you today is have you chosen the path to travel on? Have you walked off the easy way onto the harder way to reach the eternal life? Do you know without a doubt which path you are on? Will you choose the narrow more difficult path or the easy path along with all those that thing the road signs can't be real?
   Think about which path you want to be going on and make sure you are on the right one.

Have a Blessed Day!!!
