Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
There are many ways and paths, but only one will bring life. We are inundated with knowledge. Books abound, screaming that they know the 'way' and for $15 dollars you can too.
TV shows, radio shows, magazines, and of course the Internet are full of the way we should go.
The good news - people are searching
The bad news - many are looking in all the wrong places. Listening to those who tickle their ears, entertain, and feed them what they want to hear.
2 Timothy 4:3 NASB
3For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” Romans 12:2
Be strong in the Lord. Hide the Word deep in your heart.
The world is watching us. The lost are searching for the narrow way. Be the light that shines on the truth and lead many to life.
The world is dying to see the Truth.
