The Narrow Road


We must intentionally make choices to please God. It's not something we accidentally drift into doing.

Matthew 7:13 (NIV®)   

“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.”


As Jesus-followers we are called to walk a pathway that is a little less conventional because of the character choices it requires. The best way to do that is to make pleasing God the overarching goal of your life. Open your calendar for tomorrow and look at the things that will occupy your day. Ask, “In the midst of those things, how might I please God?” We must intentionally choose to make some counterintuitive responses to life in order to walk His pathway and not drift along in the cultural mainstream. When your objective no longer is to look like most others look and choose what most others choose, you’ll be in a place where you can more clearly see God’s will and purposes for your life. And you’ll demonstrate to all who know you that following Jesus is the best way to live.



Heavenly Father, more than any other goal in life, I desire to please You. Holy Spirit, keep me on the narrow road so that my words and actions will demonstrate my allegiance to Almighty God. Refine my dreams and aspirations so that You are at the center of all of them, and I will glorify Your name. In Jesus’ name, amen.
