Two Paths

In Matt 7:13-14,  Jesus illustrates the paths to God.  He had in previous verses made it clear that righteousness is a product of an inner transformation.  When a person asks Christ into their life they are regenerated from the inside out by the Holy Spirit.  Jesus then points out that if you want eternal and abundant life you have to enter by the straight and narrow gate.  Jesus then points out that the highway to hell or the road to destruction is wide.  In John 14:6, we are presented with the reality that Jesus is the way, the truth and the life and no one can come to the Father but through Him.  Worldly philosophy states that there are many paths to God.  Jesus debunks these lies by saying the road to destruction is wide and many people are travelling it.  Having many people heading the same direction does not mean they know where they are going, it just means they have a large group to travel with.  Jesus says the way to eternal, righteous and abundant life is narrow and few will find it.  Jesus also compares His teaching with those of the religious leaders of the day.  Their teaching will lead to destruction and His will lead to eternal life.  Your promises today are John 3:16, 14:6, Rom 10:9-10 and James 4:7  Your Insightful Sayings are:  It takes more faith to believe in evolution than God.  To stop an argument stop talking.
