Jesus said that there are two pathways or gateways, one which is wide and easy and one which is narrow. In Matthew chapter 7 you’ll find His words: 13“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. 14“For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.
Many times we feel that we are on the right path and if we truly belong to Jesus we are likely on the narrow path leading to life. But what about the rest of the world? Many find the broad pathway that they have been deceived into believing that it is the pathway to life as well. Sometimes the deceit is so complete that they may not find out that they are on the wrong pathway until it is too late. This is the deception that many today are struggling with. Some teachers and preachers are not teaching the whole counsel of God from His Word.
They are only teaching parts of it which people like to hear or want to hear and skipping over the parts which offend people. This is not the way that the apostle Paul taught that the gospel should be preached nor is it the way or the message that Jesus would’ve taught. God knows those who are hearing and following the pathway leading to life and those who are on the “broad road/gateway” He longs for them to see the Truth…but many won’t.
The entire message of Jesus and His teachings shows that there are only two ways: good or evil, light or dark, repent and believe for your salvation or choose to follow your own way and fall into the trap set by Satan. There are no gray areas in the Bible. You are either following God’s way and believing Him for your salvation or you are following Satan’s ways and living your life they way that you see fit. You must choose which side you want to live for eternity with, God or Satan, Heaven or hell? The choice is yours and it truly is your choice which sends you to one destination or the other God knows which choice you will make but do you? Make this choice before your life comes to an end because at that point it is too late and the choice has been made.
