Come to God through the narrow gate, because the wide gate and broad path is the way that leads to destruction—nearly everyone chooses that crowded road! The narrow gate and the difficult way leads to eternal life—so few even find it!
Jesus, Matthew 7:13-14
A man must learn the way of Life, which is the narrow road, and he must know the voice of the only One who can truly teach him. There is a language, an understanding, a path, and an experience that leads to a practice. That practice is a way of Life that every man must learn if he is going to be an oriented man. A big question is,
Will a man trust the heart of his Teacher…is his Teacher good?
No matter how young or old you are, how inexperienced or experienced, there is One who wants to intervene in your life and take you on this quest. There is One who wants the significant role of teaching, loving, initiating, validating, and turning you loose into the world to be dangerous for good.
There aren’t many men in training, collaborating with God, partnering in a glorious alliance of hearts. Look around you. Loss of heart is everywhere. Loss of Life is extensive. The situation is far worse than we thought.
But the Life that is available to you—Life hidden in Christ—is far better than you can possibly imagine. And it’s available to all who seek it out.
