Summary: THERE ARE TWO WAYS YOU ARE GOING TO TRAVEL ONE LEADING TO DESTRUCTION, DEATH AND HELL AND THE OTHER LEADING TO LIFE EVERLASTING.

DOWN THIS ROAD

TEXT

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.

INTRODUCTION

THE ACCOUNT BEING GIVEN HERE IS NOT THAT OF A CHOICE

BETWEEN A BROAD WHITE WAY WITH LOTS OF FUN AND A

NARROW, DARK, UNINVITING ALLEY.

THE ACCOUNT BEING GIVEN HERE IS A PICTURE OF A FUNNEL.

IF YOU ENTER THE FUNNEL AT THE BROAD END, IT KEEPS

NARROWING DOWN UNTIL YOU COME TO DEATH, DESTRUCTION

AND HELL. BUT YOU ENTER THE FUNNEL AT THE NARROW END,

THAT’S WHERE YOU’LL FIND CHRIST. CHRIST IS THE WAY, THE

TRUTH AND THE LIFE. CHRIST SAYS “ I AM COME THAT THEY

MIGHT HAVE LIFE AND THAT THEY MAY HAVE IT MORE

ABUNDANTLY (JOHN 10:10). THE LONGER YOU WALK WITH JESUS,

THE WIDER THE FUNNEL GETS. ON THE CONTRARY,

THE ACCOUNT THAT IS GIVEN IS OF THE BAD WAY OF SIN, AND

THE GOOD WAY OF HOLINESS. THERE ARE BUT TWO WAYS,

RIGHT AND WRONG, GOOD AND EVIL; THE WAY TO HEAVEN AND

THE WAY TO HELL, ONE OF WHICH WE ARE ALL WALKING; NO

MIDDLE PLACE HEREAFTER, NO MIDDLE WAY NOW: THE

DISTINCTION OF THE CHILDREN OF MEN INTO SAINTS AND

SINNERS, GODLY AND UNGODLY, WILL SWALLOW UP ALL THE

TO ETERNITY.

THIS IS THE PICTURE OF THE LIFE OF A CHILD OF GOD, IT GETS

BETTER EVERYDAY.

4 POINTS

1) BE ON WATCH I PETER 5:8

2) THE WAY JOHN 14:6

3) WHAT IS OUR HOPE EZEKIEL 36:27

4) WHY DOESN’T THE WORLD BELIEVE 2 CORINTHIANS 4:4

I. BE ON WATCH

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 THAT GO IN THEREAT:

1) HERE IS AN ACCOUNT GIVEN US, THE WAY OF SIN AND SINNERS.

DOWN THIS ROAD MULTITUDES ARE ALLURED INTO IT; THE

GATE IS WIDE,, AND THE THE WAY IS BROAD, AND THERE ARE

MANY TRAVELLERS ON IT.

DOWN THIS ROAD YOU WILL HAVE AN ABUNDANCE OF LIBERTY

IN THIS WAY, BECAUSE THE GATE IS WIDE, ANS STANDS WIDE

OPEN TO TEMPT THOSE THAT GO RIGHT ON THEIR WAY;

YOU MAY WALK INTHE WAY OF:

1) YOUR HEART

2) YOUR LUST

3) PASSION

DOWN THIS ROAD THERE IS A CHOICE OF SINFUL WAYS

DOWN THIS ROAD YOU WILL HAVE AN ABUNDANE OF COMPANY:

MANY THERE BE THAT GO INTO THIS GATE, AND WALK THIS

WAY, IF WE FOLLOW IT WILL BE ONLY TO DO EVIL: IF WE GO

WITH THE CROWD, IT WILL BE THE WRONG WAY. IT IS NATURAL

FOR US TO DO WHAT THE CROWD DOES. WHAT MOST OF THE

CROWD DOES WILL CAUSE US TO PERISH. AND WE SHOULD BE

CAUTIOUS. IF MANY PERISH WE SHOULD BEE ALL THE MORE

CAUTIOUS.

DOWN THIS ROAD LEADS TO DESTRUCTION, DEATH, ETERNAL

DEATH AND AT THE END IS EVERLASTING DESTRUCTION FROM

THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD

II. THE WAY

BECAUSE STRAIT IS THE GATE, AND NARROW IS THE WAY, WHICH

LEADETH UNTO LIFE, AND FEW THERE BE THAT FIND IT.

HERE IS AN ACCOUNT GIVEN US OF THE WAY OF HOLINESS.

DOWN THIS ROAD, THE GATE IS STRAIT, CONVERSION AND

REGENERATION ARE THE GATE, BY WHICH WE ENTER INTO THIS

WAY, IN WHICH WE BEGIN A LIFE OF FAITH AND SERIOUS

GODLINESS; OUT OF A STATE OF SIN INTO A STATE OF GRACE,

WE MUST PASS BY THE NEW BIRTH.

I HEARD MY LORD SAY ON THE OTHER DAY IN ST. JOHN 3:3

UNLESS ONE IS BORN AGAIN, HE CANNOT SEE THE KINGDOM OF

GOD”

DOWN THIS ROAD THERE IS A STRAIT GATE, HARD TO FIND, AND

HARD TO GET THROUGH; LIKE A PASSAGE BETWEEN TWO ROCKS.

AND BETWEEN THE PASSAGES, BY WHICH JONATHAN SOUGHT TO

GO OVER UNTO THE PHILISTINES GARRISON, THERE WAS A

SHARP ROCK ON THE ONE SIDE: AND A SHARP ROCK ON THE

OTHER SIDE: AND THE NAME OF THE ONE WAS BOEZ, AND THE

NAME OF THE OTHER SENEH. I SAMUEL 14:4

DOWN THIS ROAD THERE MUST BE:

A NEW HEART

A NEW SPIRIT

OLD THINGS MUST BE CHANGED, CORRUPT HABITS MUST BE

CHANGED, OLD CUSTOMS MUST BE CHANGED, BROKEN OFF.

WHAT WE WERE DOING ALL OF OUR DAYS MUST BE UNDONE

AGAIN.

IF ANY MAN BE IN CHRIST, HE IS A NEW CREATURE: OLD THINGS

HAVE PASSED AWAY; BEHOLD, ALL THINGS ARE BECOME NEW.

DOWN THIS ROAD WE MUST STRUGGLE AGAINST OPPOSITION

FROM WITHOUT AND FROM WITHIN.

DOWN THIS ROAD THERE IS A STRAIT GATE, FOR WE MUST STOOP

OR WE CAN’T GO IN BY IT.
