The reason the narrow road is so much less traveled is
that few are willing to devote themselves to the journey.
Is your liIe really any diIIerent Irom the next guy? Do you watch the same

Do you have similar ambitions Ior career. possessions. and selI-interests?
What do you think about? What do you really enioy? Where is your heart?

Are You Really Saved?
Many acknowledge a belieI in Jesus Christ and believe that they are saved. but their

A follower of Christ lives to glorify God above all else (at all times),
the sinner rejects God’s claim on his life and lives to please himself.

Are There Idols In Your Life?
Many things can be idols in your liIe. An idol takes Iocus oII oI God (comes between you and
God). Your liIe in Christ must be at a place where you can walk away Irom everything –
nothing has a hold on you.

Counting the Cost
AIter having sought the Lord. one must count the cost oI Iollowing him beIore making any
decision on commitment. Are you willing to make Him the Lord oI your liIe? Could you Iorsake
all? How about denying yourselI and turning your back on the things oI the world?
Many were led to the Lord with a quick prayer that may not have even mentioned repentance
and most likely nothing about the necessity oI changing your liIe. What you are won with is
what you are won too. These Iolks didn’t sign-up Ior a commitment and thus they are worldly.
unchanged and uncommitted. Does this describe your liIe?
Luke 14:26-30.33 “II any man come to me. and hate not his Iather. and mother. and wiIe. and

disciple.” (Also read Luke 14:31-33 – how kings count the cost beIore battle)
Repentance is a changing oI mind about one’s sin. one’s relationship with God. and about
Jesus Christ. It is sorrow Ior sin – a heart determined to Iorsake sin.
Isaiah 55:6-7. “Seek ye the Lord while he may be Iound. call ye upon him. while he is near:
Let the wicked Iorsake his way. and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return
unto the Lord. and he will have mercy on him.”
Proverb 28:13. “He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso conIesseth and
forsaketh them shall have mercy.”
Repentance Iocuses on what must be released and Iorsaken (sins) prior to what may be
gained (mercy and grace).

Sorrow and regret Ior past sins is not suIIicient. The old wicked nature and sinIul liIestyle must

did baptize in the wilderness. and preach the baptism oI repentance Ior the remission oI sins.”
Jesus taught repentance: Luke 5:32. “I came not to call the righteous. but sinners to repentance.”
Mark 1:15. “And saying. The time is IulIilled. and the kingdom oI God is at hand: repent ye
and believe the gospel.” (also Mark 2:17). Luke 13:3. “I tell you. Nay: but. except ye repent. ye
shall all likewise perish.”
Christ’s disciples taught repentance: Acts 2:38. “Then Peter said unto them. Repent. and be
