Matthew 7:13-14

13"Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it."

I think this is my favorite bible verse.

It is so easy to go along with the crowd; to do the same things that everyone else is doing. So many people, even people who call themselves CHRISTIANS, are on the path to destruction because they are taking the EASY path!

They are the ones who go to church every Sunday, but in their real life no one even knows that they are a Christian, because they don't act like one! Matthew 7:21 says, "Not everyone who calls me their Lord will get into the kingdom of heaven. Only the ones who obey my Father in heaven will get in."

It's not enough to just BELIEVE in God. We have to LIVE for him. Everything we do should reflect Him.

The path to LIFE is so much harder. It's hard to take the narrow path! It's hard to stand up for what you believe and not be ashamed. It's hard to be made fun of or criticized for choosing to be different and not do the things that most people do.

It can be hard to live your life for Jesus! But He gave his best for us, so we should give our best to Him.
