Road Narrows, part of the Road Signs of the Bible series on Courageous Christian Father. I want to talk about a narrow road. A narrow road is a road that is not as wide to travel on. Narrow also means small. Narrow means less room. If we have less room to move around, we will have less chances of mess up. God’s Word tells us that his gate is narrow, but wide leads to destruction. If we were on a wide road, it won’t do us good. We must travel on the narrow road. A narrow road is often difficult to enter too.
See Matthew 7:13-14
13 “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. 14 Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.
Also few people travel on narrow roads. We often think too much of ourselves and not enough of Christ. We must rely on Christ when we travel all the time. We must be humble so we can travel this narrow road. We must use this road less traveled, this narrow road so we can stay close and clean with the Lord. Not all roads we take will bring us to Heaven. Only this Narrow, One Way Road will bring us there.
We cannot depend on others to get us through this narrow gate at the road, we can only reply on Christ.
If we think about it, a wider road is much easier to navigate as we go along to drive, but when we are on the narrow road, we have to use caution when we travel. Christ is warning us about dangers and temptations that may come in our path as we travel. So that is why we must travel on the narrow road, to help lower those chances and when we come to a temptation or storm, we know Christ will help us through it.
As Christians we should strive to be more Christ-like and use the narrow road so we can enter the narrow gate.
