Thought for the day

"There's only one path that leads to life, and that is, the narrow path. Don't be confused by the rhetoric of those on this broad path. They are not the experts of the narrow path. They don't even know where it leads.

Most people who argue against God the Father, the only begotten Son of God and the Holy Spirit have never met God the Father, Jesus the Son or the Holy Spirit.
  • We don't blame those who have not met the Master.
  • We don't hammer them with truths that they cannot comprehend.
  • We don't treat them with malice.
  • We don't judge them.
  • We love them and reveal Christ to them by loving them in a way they have not known.
  • We carefully minister the truth to them.
  • We pray for them.
  • We go to God in supplication and get answers.
  • We intercede for every person on the broad path. But we don't follow them. We cannot. We are not on the same path, nor are we in the same direction.
God calls us all from the broad path, to turn around and start heading the other way. Jesus says in Mark 1:15 "The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel." When Jesus says, "repent ye." He is literally saying turn around and head in the opposite direction of the one you are on.
