Jesus says in Matthew 7:13 that wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction. At the time you are on this wide path, it seems like you are going the right direction. You see everyone going the same way. Everyone seems to agree on the same things. It seems right, yet the end of the road here is death. Jesus in the next verse says, because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life.
The warning is to pay attention to the road you are on. When I get on the freeway to head to San Francisco, I need to pay attention to where I am going. If for some reason the signs say San Diego, you can be assured that I will not make it to my destination. If it seems right and feels right, I’d caution you that it’s probably a good idea to check where that path leads to.
Join me on that narrow and difficult path which leads to life.
