The Narrow Road

Hell Testimonies

In Matt.7:13-14 Jesus Christ teaches there is a very narrow road that leads to eternal life and there is a wide road that leads to destruction. He said in John 14:6 that He was the only way. In addition, we are instructed to walk the narrow road of a Godly lifestyle. He tells us to stand for the TRUTH of God’s Word, maintain Godly MORALS, LOVE even those who hate us and FORGIVE all those who have wronged us.

Truth is rejected by many and considered narrow minded. Tolerance has become the high moral ground instead of truth. We are told to accept everyone’s beliefs, no matter how morally depraved and we dare not offend anyone. God has provided us with a moral standard not to restrict us, but to protect us.

Being a Christian is not just showing love to those who love you, but showing love and forgiveness to those who mistreat you or even hate you. However, it does not mean to tolerate immorality and compromise God’s Word simply because society has changed. People change and the times change but truth never changes. There is a right and a wrong and God’s Word is the plumb line.

Jesus did not tolerate the religious leaders’ actions, as they did not practice what they preached. He told them they were hypocrites, liars, full of dead men’s bones, and of their father the devil. When someone was in sin, He didn’t say, “Well I understand; you’ve had a bad day.” He was not concerned with offending them and He didn’t try to comfort them. He didn’t condemn them, but He told them to go and sin no more. Jesus showed love and forgiveness to everyone who called on His name… and He still does today.

As Christians, we are warned to stay away from evil, guard our eyes from what we watch and be wise with our associations. Jesus told us to follow Him, don’t look back and to keep His commandments. He told us to pray daily, to read His Word daily and to guard our heart. He told us not to speak evil or negatively about anyone. He told us to turn from our sins and forgive others who sin against us. He told us to share His Word and to feed the poor. He told us if they take your shirt; give them your coat too. Whoever shall compel you to go a mile, go with him two. He said to love your enemies, and pray for those who despitefully use you, bless those who curse you, and do good to them that hate you. Also He said if we lust, that’s the same as committing adultery. If we are angry without a cause, we are in danger of the judgment.

Being a true Christian is not for wimps. It is not for the faint hearted. However, it is not in our strength that we walk in His ways. It is God who gives us the grace or ability to obey Him. And – it’s not a burden, but a delight. As we stand for truth, such as loving our enemies, stating there is only one way to heaven, and sharing that hell awaits those who reject Jesus, we will encounter opposition. Most often, obeying God’s Word is contrary to how society lives. If we want to be victorious we will have to obey His Word otherwise we will be struggling and defeated throughout our lives.

Are you up to the calling? Will you take a stand for God’s Word or will you cave to the compromise of today’s society? Will you take the wide road that most are on, or will you choose the narrow traveled by few.
