"Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it."
Matthew 7: 13, 14
It's not always fun to go the other, unpopular way, especially when it seems like those on the broad road are having a gas. Carefree, high on life, they're all going the easy way. But Jesus says this way leads to destruction.
I imagine the narrow gate, off the beaten path, ensconced by vines in a shady arbor. Hard to find but so worth the effort, for when I swing the squeeky gate, I've entered the portal of life everlasting.
Jesus said, "Knock and the door will be opened unto you." (Matthew 7:7) If you look for Him, you will find him when you seek with all your heart.
