THEME: THE BROAD & NARROW WAY

TEXT: Matthew 7:13-14
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:

14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

MEMORY VERSE: And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein. No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there: Isaiah 35:8-10

MESSAGE:
For every human born into this physical world, he or she must follow either the broad way to hellfire or the narrow way to heaven at the end of this life. In other words, eternity is real and the activities of an individual person will either land him on the broad way or narrow way.

If you are not born-again and living as you wish, you are already on the broad way that stops in the pit of hell. It is immaterial whether you believe it or not.

The broad way is preferred by those who have no hope outside this world. Their behaviour runs counter to the word of God. In their bid to enjoy life, they do all manner of wickedness. also the broad way is reserved for liars, cheats, thieves, fraudsters, lesbians, homosexuals, fornicators, abortionists, idolaters, haters of others, false witnesses, forger of documents, worldly dancers, drunkards, extortioners, covetous people and many other works of dishonesty and wickedness.

As long as you love the things of this world and its corrupt system, you are on the broad way. A cursory look at the world today reveals that most people across the nations are already on the broad way to eternal damnation.

Our memory verse tells us that the only way to heaven is the highway of holiness or the narrow way. The Lord counsels us to enter into life through the striat gate but unfortunately, the things of God do not appeal to so many people to their own eternal detriment.

As long as you are alive, I invite you to switch side and come over to the narrow way before it is too late. Remember that no amount of enjoyment in this sinking world can be compared with crushing sorrow in hellfire without end, so be wise and come to Jesus and He will receive you.

PRAYER POINTS:
Ask God to deliver you from vanity.
Pray for the grace to be on the narrow way till the end.

AMEND YOUR WAYS: If you are not born again you must do something as a matter of urgency. He that commits sin is of the devil (1 John 3:8). If you are into lying, cheating, bitterness, keeping malice, pride, manifesting anger, quarreling, unforgiveness, hatred, envy, contention, strife, gossiping, taking or giving bribe, selfishness, kidnapping. If you are into masturbation, fornication, adultery, prostitution, abortion, lesbianism, homosexuality, you need to repent. Are you into idolatry, do you make or use charms, rituals, bow down to images, Are you into occultism? Do you smoke cigarette, cocaine, heroine? Are you lusting, covetous, alcohol drinking, divorcee or into worldliness?, you must stop bleaching your body, or painting your lips, eyes, fixing attachments, weave-on, earrings (Gen 35:2-4) Are you one of those that put on nude dresses, short skirts, transparent dresses to seduce (A seducer is not a Christian) do you wear trouser as a woman? Repent and give your life to Jesus Christ.

LET'S PRAY: If you want to give your life to JESUS pray this short prayer with me: Almighty God, I come unto you in the name of Jesus. Father I confess that I am a sinner. All my sins I confess to you. I am very sorry for all my sins. Lord I promise you that from today I will never continue in them anymore. I believe that Jesus Christ died and rose again on the third day for my justification. Almighty God, use the blood of Jesus to wash my sins away. Lord Jesus, come into my heart, be my Lord and Personal Savior. I surrender my life to you. Cancel my name from the book of death and give me grace to make Heaven. AMEN!
