The Race.
The Narrow and the Broad Way.
There are two paths set before us. One narrow and one broad. The consequences of choosing the correct path and running the race appropriately are eternal with a righteous judgment at the end of the course!
Properly qualifying, obeying the rules, and enduring are crucial to the eternal outcome. Success is measured by completion of the correct path.

There are two paths set before us. One narrow andone broad. Theconsequences of choosing the correct path and running the raceappropriately are eternal with a righteous judgment at the end of the course!Properly qualifying, obeying the rules, and enduring are crucial to the eternal outcome.Success is measured by completion of the correct path. Less traveled. Few find it.Difficult, trials/tribulations/obstacles, need perseverance, must endure to the end.Much to narrow and arduous to bring along the things/pleasures of the world.Many will not accompany you on this journey.Wide and well traveled.Enjoy the pleasures of life for a season.No qualifying or preparation required.No rules, just right (in your own eyes).Very accommodating to your selfish interest/desires.
 
The reason the narrow road is somuch less traveled is that few arewilling to devote themselves to the journey.

1 Corinthians 9:24, “Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run that ye may obtain.”Philippians 3:14, “I press toward the mark (
 goal 
) for the prize of the high calling of God inChrist Jesus.” (Also Hebrews 3:1)Hebrews 12:1, “Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight
 
, and the sin which doth easily beset us, and let us runwith patience the race that is set before us.” (Also read Hebrews 12:2)2 Timothy 4:7-8, “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course (
race
), I have keptthe faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness
 
, which the Lord, therighteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that lovehis appearing.”Our attitude toward pleasing God should be, as the zeal required for winning arace. We must have focus, commitment and a love for what we are doing.
Press on, Fight the fight, Lay aside sin & worldliness, Completethe course!

Matthew 7:13-14, “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way,the leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate,and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”Luke 13:23-24, “Then said one unto him, Lord are there few that be saved? And he saidunto them, strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many
 
, I say unto you, will seek to enter inand shall not be able.”The outcome from following the broad path is assured, the

Jesus said of the religious leaders: Matthew 15:14, “Letthem alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.”Following the narrow path takes focus, commitment, obedience, sacrifice, and endurance.Once you start on this path, God will help you!
Keep Your Eyes Upon
Remember: The majority is on the broad path!

John 8:31, “Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word
 
,then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make youfree.”  – The wickedness on or thetruth of God’s word? Where do you spend most of your time?

Matthew 5:6, “Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.”Matthew 6:33, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all thesethings shall be added unto you.”James 4:8, “Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners;and purify your hearts, ye double-minded.”Luke 11:9-10, “And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and you shall find;knock and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seekethfindeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.”Proverb 8:17, “I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.”
 Your relationship with God is such an intimate thing between you
Do you conform to God’s will or conform Him to your will?
Do you just work Him in around your stuff? Are your prayersself centered? Do you always want things? Only in a crisis?

Qualifying to Enter at The Strait Gate – Knowing God
John 3:16-17, “For God so loved the world that he sent his only begotten son, that whosoever  believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into theworld to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.”John 3:18, “And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world,and men loved darkness rather then the light, because their deeds were evil.For everyone that doeth evil hateth the light
 
, neither cometh to the light, because their deeds were evil.”
 The Son of God Lightsthe narrowpath!
Matthew 1:21, “And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call hisname JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.”
Why didJesus come?
 
Jesus shed blood does not allow you to stay in your sins!
1 John 3:8-9, “He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroythe works of the devil. Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seedremaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.”

Galatians 2:17, “But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are foundsinners, is therefore Christ the minister of sin? God forbid.”

Romans 6:16, “Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants yeare to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?”Romans 6:9-13, “Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath nomore dominion over him. For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, heliveth unto God. Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin
 
, but alive untoGod through Jesus Christ our Lord; Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body
 
, that yeshould obey it in the lusts thereof. Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead,and your members of righteousness unto God.”
Galatians 6:7, “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth,that shall he also reap.
Romans 6:22-23, “But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of Godis eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
