In Matthew 7:13-14 Jesus is giving His disciples a choice between two gates. The wide gate has an easy road to travel, but it ends at destruction. The narrow gate has a hard road to travel, but it ends at life. Jesus says that many choose the wide gate, because the road is easy. This causes me to scratch my head, because this destination ends at the destruction of your life. The reason why many choose this gate, is because little attention is given to the end result. Look at our society and the number of people that are murdered daily, because we still have people wanting to make a fast dollar through any means. This is a wide gate with an easy road, but the result is destruction.


The narrow gate is not the desire for many people, because they are to big to make it through. I’m not talking about our physical size, but the spiritual baggage of the sin in our lives won’t allow us to get through. In order to get through this gate we must first acknowledge we are sinners in need of a savior. When we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior the sins that made us to big to get in are now removed. When we begin to travel on the hard road we know we can make it, because we are not traveling alone. Jesus is right there with us encouraging us every step along the way, and we know this road leads to eternal life. Therefore, we stay on the hard road, because we choose life!


There is somebody who is reading this and no longer wants to to be on the easy road, because they chose the wide gate. You can come back to the narrow gate, and I know when you look at the gate you can’t fit through. Now, you have to make the decision to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Once you do the baggage of sin is removed and you can go through the gate. Now, I’m talking to the person who is on that hard road, and frustration and anger are trying to set in your mind and heart. I want to remind you, I choose life! That is the reason you are on this road and Jesus will never leave or forsake you. ¬†Amen!
