The Narrow Road

There are many different types of roads in the Western Province of Zambia; the very least of which is blacktop. There are footpaths, ox cart paths, sandy roads, make-your-own-road-as-you-go and also - roads that you could literally walk faster than drive upon. In Matthew 7:13-14 (NIV), Jesus taught about the way to Heaven. He 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 find it.” There is only one way to eternal life with God.. The Word of God also says in Hebrews 11:6 (NIV) “And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.” Pray that the Mbunda will leave the broad road and will earnestly search for this road called Narrow.
