mikehill4jesus “Exactly how many Christians are on the Narrow Road described by Jesus?”
1st June 2016 (8.26) My .mp3 Thought for Today Audio
The Lord Jesus talks about two roads.
BE SURE OF THIS CHRISTIAN – THE LORD JESUS KNOWS WHAT ROAD YOU ARE ON
The narrow and wide gates
13 ‘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.
He also describes the people who are on the Narrow and Broad roads
John 14:23 Jesus replied, ‘Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. [Those on the narrow road to heaven] 24 Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. [Those on the broad road to hell] These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.’
How many Christians have I met who are on the Narrow Road?
Well, it’s estimated that there are 2.2 Billion Christians, so I can’t have met many of them in order to judge them.
In any case, it’s the Lord Jesus who does the judging. However, He gives us lots of clues as to who are and who are not.
Now it is clear from the above teaching, John 14:23-24. That those on the Narrow Road journey in the company of God.
Therefore, those who do not obey the Lord Jesus do not have this companionship, so must be on the Broad Road.
The Lord teaches that those on the Narrow Road must love one another as He loves them.
John 13:34 ‘A new command I give you: love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.’
Well, not one Christian Church Leader helps me to witness for my Lord Jesus, so they are not obeying the Lord Jesus, John 14:24. So they can’t be on the Narrow Road!
The late Rev. Ken Newton
I have a Tribute webpage about a Man who was on the Narrow Road. A Minister for the Lord Jesus who not only showed solid evidence of the Holy Spirit, he also shared written testimony of the Lord Jesus working with Him. Just as I have.
These spiritually unconverted Christians on the Broad Road can’t do that! They can’t show proven evidence or publish a proven testimony.
There is only one escape from the Broad Road that leads to Hell!
