God Thinking XVII - All Paths Do Not Lead To God 5

"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 path you are on. 
God knows that at the end of the broad path is empty promises from the wicked one.  Those on the broad path cannot see the end. They only see the path and all its trappings. 
Jesus says again in Mark 1:17, “...Come ye after Me, and I will make you to become fishers of men.”

Many, many times Jesus says, “follow Me.”  Jesus leads us on the narrow path to the straight gate.  And while those on the broad path are hurling accusations and putting obstacles in our way; while they are offering us everything possible to keep us from staying on the narrow path, Jesus is walking the path with us.  There is no way to stay in the right direction without Jesus leading the way.

Even when Jesus visited the home of the unbelieving, the prostitutes, houses of ill repute, (one of the stations on the broad path), He was always headed in the other direction of those on the broad path.  He only stopped in to tell those inside that they were headed in the wrong direction."
