“For the gate is narrow and the way is constricted that leads to life, and there are few who find it” (Matthew 7:13).

We each have our part.  If we spend our days wandering, we will never find the gate.  If we will listen to Jesus, we have found the gate.  Many seem to hang out at the gate.  It seems many who have the church habit do this.  Do not just hang out, but go all the way in.  Go through the door and begin the journey again.  If you have been going the wrong way, turn back and then go the right way.

Lord, this makes sense.  I know how to make plans and go on a journey to some place.  I do not just head out but have a direction I know I need to go to get to where I am going.  Yet in life, I often wander.  What You are saying is not foreign to my mind, but something I do all the time.  Lead me to see in You alone the way of everlasting life.  Help me to understand the need to be intentional in what I am doing and the direction I am going.

Guide me Lord Jesus in the direction of my life, for You know the way I need to head.  Let me never walk back out of the gate but stay on the narrow path that You have set before me.  May I always walk the course that You set before me.  You have shown me the gate.  I have walked through.  Now lead me far down the way so that I walk with You all the days of my life.  You are my pilot, Lord.  Lead me always to safe harbor.  Amen.
