Eternal Life is a Choice
Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.Mathew 7:13-14
We can walk down the narrow road guided by the Word into our eternal life in Heaven, or we can walk in Satan’s lies in the darkness of the broad road to eternal destruction. Which road we decide to walk on, is totally our choice. If we choose to live by our fleshly desires, we have chosen the broad road, but if we choose to live by the Spirit, we have chosen the narrow road.
The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead, he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. (1 Peter 2:9) The Lord is waiting for all people to have the opportunity to live by the Truth or to live by Satan’s lies. If we don’t know God’s truth, we will by default live by Satan’s lies. It’s amazing how many people are causal about their eternally life because of their lack of knowledge.
Satan has many people living for their fleshly desires, with little or no belief in life after death. Satan has made the choice for these people, because they live their life believing Satan’s lies. God has given man freewill, and he wants everyone to have an opportunity to hear the Truth. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. (Matthew 24:14)
It’s sad because a great number of people don’t read the Word and find the truth, therefore they don’t have the knowledge to make a choice. For example, how can we make a choice between A and B if we only have information about B? This is Satan’s desire, live for the flesh and forget about God and eternal life. Many people don’t walk with the Lord because: they think they will lose their freedom, or the Bible is to many pages and difficult to understand, or they worship a god they don’t know. These are all lies from Satan.
Remember it’s our choice, walk on the broad road in the darkness, or walk on the narrow road in the Light. Look at the Word of God and obtain information so you can make a choice. Because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. (Matthew 24:14) Our soul lives forever, either with Satan and his demons forever, or with the Father and the Son in Heaven forever. It’s our choice with eternal consequences. If we choice the narrow road the Lord will guide us into Heaven.
Today help others to make a wise choice, God’s truth or Satan’s lies. Prepare and ask the Lord for guidance to answer through scripture the difficult questions from lost souls.
Prayer: Lord prepare me with your wisdom to tell others the Truth. In Jesus name, Amen
