There are two roads in life on which mankind may travel. It is impossible to travel on both roads at the same time, therefore one must chose which road he will travel. Both roads start from the same place, and it appears at first that they will both lead to the same destination, for they seem to run parallel to one another for quite a distance, but then very subtly they begin to separate and the distance between them begins to widen, and after a while they have gone in completely different directions.
Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior has warned us about choosing the wrong road in life, and has described these two roads for us. He has pictured one as being a very broad , well paved, well lighted, and easily traveled highway on which it seems would be the most logical way to travel if one had alternate ways of reaching the same destination. This is the highway upon which most people travel. This is the most popular highway for the multitudes, but this road does not lead eventually to heaven, but it will take you directly to hell. Jesus said: “Broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there be that go in thereat.” Matthew 7: 13.
If one would go to heaven, he must choose the narrow road. This is the unpopular way according to the multitudes. It is difficult to travel. It has treacherous curves. It is rocky. It is a road that few people want to travel, but it is the only road that leads to heaven. “Because strait is the gate and narrow is the way which leadeth unto life and few that be that find it.” Matthew 7: 14. “Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.” Luke 13: 24.
My friend, if you want to go to heaven and enjoy the riches of God's glory forever, then you must choose the right road.
Jesus said, “I am the door” he also said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.” If you would have life eternal, you must choose to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and receive him as your Lord and Savior, and by his grace, walk in the paths that he has trod.
