Our journey is not the same,
the paths we walk are different, yet the same. The pain still resides with us, regardless of the cause.
We don’t see eye to eye, yet have a common goal. We allow obstacles to block our path. Sometimes I wonder if we truly understand how deep and sincere our relationship with Christ should be. How joyful and full of love it can be. Many yearn for this relationship. So why don’t we have it?
Living a wordly life is easier, so they say. For a Christian, it’s not easy to live either way. Trying to live in the world after accepting Christ can be difficult. Why? Because of the convictions placed on the heart. We second guess everything we say and everything we do. Those convictions are helping us grow, and for this we are thankful; yet impatient. We want to be filled with His spirit all the time! It will come. In His time.
Walking with Christ can also be difficult. Why? Because it’s not popular to do so anymore. Church has become a hobby for some rather than a place for spiritual growth. This is no surprise really. The Bible tells us they will turn away as the end approaches. It’s so sad. We have so much at stake by turning away. It’s hard to comprehend why anyone would take such a chance.
The Bible also tells us ““You can enter God’s Kingdom only through the narrow gate. The highway to hell is broad, and its gate is wide for the many who choose that way. But the gateway to life is very narrow and the road is difficult, and only a few ever find it.”
Matthew 7:13-14 NLT
It’s time we got our priorities straight. It’s time we got right with God. It’s time to make the narrow road a crowded road.
Christ or the world? There is no comparison.
