Summary: Both the Wide and the Narrow will indeed take you to God.
“Father, I am your servant, willing and desiring to be used to bless your people.”
The Fields are white and the laborers are few!
2. C.H. Spurgeon said, “If God does not save a man by truth he certainly will not save them by lies, and if the old gospel is not competent to work a revival, then we will do without the revival;
Good Morning, I want to honor all of us Seniors for a minute. we all know what we mean when we talk about “Senior Moments”
It’s when you try to do something, or think of something, and you’re totally without a clue
• You know you’re getting older when the only thing you want for your birthday is not to be reminded of it.
• One Senior said: “When the doctor asked what I did for exercise, I said pushing ninety is exercise enough!”
• Another Senior said: “There are four advantages to getting old and forgetful: One, you meet new friends every day; two, every joke you hear is new; three, you can hide your own Easter eggs; and four ummm, I forget the fourth thing.”
Now, I know some people are very sensitive about their age
One precious lady said as she was being interviewed and was asked: “I see your birthday is April 12. What year?” Her reply was, “Every year.”
Time is precious. We really are not here on this earth for very long. We are like when you go to turn the light switch on, and the bulb is shot. One day it will eventually happen. So, how can we make the most of the time we have? We can make the most of the time we have left on earth by making the most of our walk with God.
Many people live carelessly not giving much thought about their relationship with God. One day we will all have to stand before the Creator of this universe. The question that demands an answer is this: Will the road you are currently on lead you to God as your Heavenly Father who will receive you as a forgiven child? Or will it lead you to God as your Judge who will expel you to an eternal punishment?
Two roads to God
Raccoons go through a glandular change at about 24 months. After that they often attack their owner. Since a 30-pound raccoon can be equal to a 100-pound dog in a scrap, a zoo keeper felt compelled to mention the change coming to a pet raccoon owned by a young lady named Julie.
She listened politely as he explained the coming danger. He never forgot her response. “It will be different for me . . .” And she also smiled as she added, “Why Bandit would never hurt me.” Julie underwent plastic surgery just three months later for facial lacerations sustained when her adult raccoon attacker her for no apparent reason.
All too often sin comes dressed in an adorable disguise and so we play with it. How quickly we find ourselves saying, “Oh It will be different for me.”
Warnings are very important. I have been a watchman for about twenty one years, sounding the alarm and blowing the trumpet of God’s Warning.
If your smoke detector goes off, it’s giving you a warning. If the lights on the dash of your car, or truck comes on, it’s a warning that something needs to be given attention. You may have driven a car for years and a warning light stays on whether the car is running okay, or not. We just assume it is just another false alarm. So you have to make a decision whether to believe the alarm and take appropriate action, or to disregard the alarm and go on with your business.
There are warnings in the Bible. Every person must make a decision to believe the warnings and take the appropriate action. There is a warning given by Jesus in Matthew 7. It is a warning to folks who really think they are okay. There are millions of folks who really believe they are safe from the coming judgment and anger of a Holy God. They have a false sense of security. It’s like when that huge ocean liner, the Titanic, was struck by an iceberg. It was a matter of a few hours and it would sink to the bottom of the ocean. Many people rejected the lifeboats thinking that they were more secure on the Titanic than the lifeboats.
Matt 7:13 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:
7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
