In Matthew 7:13-14 Jesus said, "Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few will find it."
Which road will you choose the wide gate that leads to destruction and hell or the narrow gate that leads to comfort and heaven? In this painting the young woman has a choice to make. She is walking down the road and comes to a turning point as she starts towards the wide gate she thinks it will be okay because the wide gate is lit up a little, but then she hears the Good News of Jesus in the Bible and chooses Him. She goes toward the narrow gate. The light of Jesus is wrapping Himself around her protecting her from destruction. She accepts the gift of salvation in Jesus and is saved.
If you haven't already then I would urge you without delay to ask Jesus into your heart. Ask Jesus to forgive you from your sins and to be Lord of your life. Get a Bible and start reading it and find a Bible teaching church.
Let's pray: Dear Lord Jesus I pray for those who have just become born again Christians. Please protect them from evil and help them have a joyous life in You. Right now I bind Satan's powers and cast it out in Jesus' name. Thank You Lord Jesus for your sacrifice on the cross and for loving us and saving us. I say these things in Jesus' name. Amen.

How many of you can raise your leg high and rest it gracefully on a ballet dance bar? Probably some of us could although maybe not so graceful. In 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 NIV it says, "Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary but what is unseen is eternal."
In this earthly life we will get sick and our bodies will not always do what we it to do. When you are a born-again Christian the Lord says to not lose heart becasue these mometary troubles are preparing us for our forever in heaven. We need to not be weary because what is seen is temporary and what is unseen is eternal.
Let's pray: Dear Lord Jesus I pray for all of those who are sick or experiencing difficult times. I pray that they will put their faith and trust in You and not lose heart. I pray for healing for anyone reading this and I pray that the Lord would deliver you from fear and anxiety. I pray for the salvation of my unsaved friends and family. Thank You Lord Jesus for Your sacrifice and for always loving us. I say these things in Jesus' holy name. Amen.
I hope you all have a happy Sunday!
