TODAY'S MESSAGE

 

INTRODUCTION:

 

“Life is a journey.”

Matthew 7:13-14 Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

 

Two Destinations: Destruction and Life

Genesis 2:16-17 And the Lord God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; 17 but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.

Deuteronomy 30:19 This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live….

Jeremiah 21:8 Furthermore, tell the people, “This is what the Lord says: See, I am setting before you the way of life and the way of death.”

Psalm 1:6 For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.

 

Two Gates: Wide and Small

John 10:9 I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved.

John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

We wouldn’t question the justice and goodness of the scientist who found the one cure for the Great Plague. So why do we question God when he has provided only one cure for our Great Plague? — Douglas Sean O’Donnell

 

Two Roads: Broad and Narrow

Life isn’t just one choice (a gate), but it’s a series of choices (a road)!

 

Two Roads: Broad and Narrow

Isaiah 53:3 He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem.

We follow Christ, not the crowd!

Conclusion:

“Enter through the narrow gate.”

For [Jesus] is himself the way, the narrow way and the straight gate. He, and he alone, is our journey’s end. When we know that, we are able to proceed along the narrow way though the straight gate of the cross, and on to eternal life, and the very narrowness of the road will increase our certainty. — Dietrich Bonhoeffer

GROUPS

We believe that significant life change best takes place in the context of intentional relationships. Groups are the places where real life and real issues are discussed. This is the environment to celebrate the successes and good times of life, as well as comfort one another in the tough and disappointing times. It’s a place to be encouraged, equipped, and challenged to grow in our relationship with Jesus Christ.
