Jesus saith unto him, I AM the Way, the Truth, and the Life: no man cometh unto the Father, BUT BY ME. John 14:6.Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, AND FEW THERE BE THAT FIND IT. Matthew 7:13- 14. Keep in mind that "finding the way" in itself, is not enough. Many have "found" Jesus, AND THAT'S ALL. They do no more, they don't Follow Him, Obey Him, or Believe what He says. They just like the idea that He passed by, looked their way, and went on. That moment of being recognized BY Christ is enough for them and no more. Ask Judas Iscariot, he'll tell you all about it. How many people in Jesus day, told their friends they saw Jesus walk by, maybe even greeted Him by Name, AND THAT'S ALL? Never to actually Follow Christ ON HIS TERMS, never to ask Him, "What would you have me to do"? And again, are satisfied just to know OF Him? To Follow Christ, give up everything, and be willing to die for the cause of Christ, IS THE TOUGHEST LIFE YOU'LL EVER HAVE. It's back breaking work with few earthly rewards. It's so tough that Christ Himself will help you carry your too heavy load, IF YOU'LL LET HIM. He'll Guide you, Lead you, and Walk with you EVERY step of the way. Under His Leadership, you'll Grow in CHRISTLIKENESS, in Holiness, Righteousness, Purity and Patience. You'll learn to Hear that Still Small Voice of the Holy Spirit, and you'll understand how and why you need to be dressed in and walk in The Whole Armour Of God. Christ is the COMPLETE Package, He not only HAS it all, He IS it all. Yes, this stuff is all good to know, BUT GO ALL THE WAY TO KNOW CHRIST more than you've ever known anything in your Life. Test Him, Prove Him, see if His Word is True. And when you figure out He Is Who He Says He Is, then forever Believe, and Believe IN Him. Follow His Lead, Obey His Word, and, Be Blessed.
