Matthew 7:13-14 NASB
¹³Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. ¹⁴For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.
“Majority rules!” That’s the edict of democracy.
This has been a blessed political philosophy for so many people over the course of history.
But, “majority rule” doesn’t apply to the Kingdom of God.
God sets the standard, not us.
God’s holiness is the goal, not just trying to be better than someone else.
Most, regretably, will never find the way of the Lord.
They want it their way.
One crucial problem with wanting things our way:
it leads to ultimate disaster.
God, the Creator and Sustainer of all life, is the only one who can set life’s agenda. Let’s ask for His help and guidance for our way!
- Ask God to have His way with your heart,
- Ask God to have His way with your thoughts,
- Ask God to have His way with your words,
- Ask God to have His way with your time,
- Ask God to have His way with your job,
- Ask God to have His way with your family,
- Ask God to have His way with your life.
- Ask God to help you to live in a way that pleases Him.
