JOURNEY OF LIFE
Indeed it's a very long journey that has two ends. The journey has a common start point, but along the way, each pilgrim chooses where to follow. There is a broad easy way and there is a narrow difficult way. However, there are connecting roads that links the two roads, the pilgrims can make a change at any point in the journey to be on either of the roads....
The journey is very tiring on the narrow way, the road is rugged, slippery, and bad. The journey is always in the darkness. Believe me about this, the pilgrims don't find this journey funny, they fall, they rise, they fall, they rise and this is what they experience till they reach the destinations. The good thing is that, whoever endure all these things to the end shall reign with God.
The Journey through the narrow way is the Christianity journey. God so love the world and He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes Him should not perish, but have everlasting life... Let us hear what the Son said about this journey of life..
“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. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and THERE ARE FEW WHO FIND IT.
Matthew 7:13-14 NKJV
Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I AM THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD. HE WHO FOLLOWS ME SHALL NOT WALK IN DARKNESS, BUT HAVE THE LIGHT OF LIFE.”
John 8:12 NKJV
BE THE LIGHT TO OTHERS SO THEY WILL FIND THEIR WAYS THROUGH YOU
Many of us has found the Light and the light is with us, therefore Jesus said “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.
Matthew 5:14-16 NKJV
Now the You and I have the light to travel through the narrow way (because we believe in the Son of God), it is therefore our duty to shine this light so bright so that other pilgrims will be helped in their journeys to find their paths in the narrow way (see:Cups of cold water (verse 2) ). The pilgrims on the wide way will also see the brightness of our light and will find their ways back to the narrow way.
Remember: our purpose on earth is not to get lost in the dark but to be a light to others, so that they may find way through us.
Have a nice day
God Bless you.
