Two Roads – Ali Winters

Two Roads

Ali Winters
Two roads lie before each of us….the wide road and the narrow road. The wide road is well traveled; acquaintances, family, friends, neighbors, colleagues also travel this bright happy road. Pride and pleasure accompany each one as they make their way joking, jeering, laughing, mocking, along the beautiful tree lined path of comfort and ease. And there will be a highway called the Way of Holiness. The unclean will not travel it, only those who walk in that Way – and fools will not stray onto it.

The LORD is not slow to fulfill His promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.
The narrow road offers hope, security, peace in the midst of the storm yet millions prefer the comfort and ease the wide road offers. The weak, the weary, the heavy laden, those who have chosen the narrow Way move steadily forward; upon one face a smile, another a tear, still others their eyes reflect a life filled with difficult days and often sleepless nights. Regardless the narrowness of the Way; the loneliness, the jeers, the jokes…men, women, the old the young continue to walk, some with a limp, a bruise, a scar, some supporting others as they make their way along the path. A twinkle in their eye, joy radiating from their face; undaunted in their task, refusing to stop, to turn around or even take notice of the wide road of comfort and ease they press on. Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.
Not everyone who says to me, ‘LORD, LORD’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of My Father who is heaven…”behold, I am coming soon, bringing My recompense with Me, to repay everyone for what he has done. I AM the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.” For if the message spoken by angels was binding, and every transgression and disobedience received its just punishment, how shall we escape if we neglect such a great salvation?
