Thought of the Day !!

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.
                                                                Matthew 7:13-14 (NIV)

There are a lot of people in this world who believe that they can pick and choose a theology that's right for them.  They go to church and decide which sermon is good based on if they liked the content or not.  Many try out different religions to see which one is most appealing.  Some are searching for the easiest, some for the most enjoyable that will allow them to keep doing the things that they want to do.  

The truth is that broad is the road that leads to destruction and all these quick fix, prosperity gospel, self-serving ideologies and theologies lie on that path.  I may not know all the answers, but one thing I can say is this.  The narrow road that few find is only narrow because people are searching to satisfy themselves instead of their loving God who wants nothing more than to have a relationship with us and then bring us joy.  

Search and you will find that true happiness is not found in self-serving religions or bars or pill bottles or needles or sexually promiscuous relationships.  These things only bring about short-lived satisfaction and leave you wanting more.  Real everlasting joy comes by putting God first and using Jesus as our example.  Once you experience the love of Christ, you will find the happiness that you've been longing for.   

In the love of Christ,
