The Narrow Gate Somewhere Ahead

PP WW“Shame on him for such counsel!” Worldly-Wiseman protested. “There is not a more dangerous and troublesome way in the world than the way he has directed you… your journey will be attended by weariness, pain, hunger, perils, nakedness, sword, lions, dragons, darkness, and, in a word, death!”

“Why, sir,” Christian said, “this burden upon my back is more terrible to me than all the things you have mentioned. I do not care what I meet with on the way, as long as I can also meet with deliverance from my burden.”

Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. Matthew 11:28-30

    No Christ, no peace and rest.

  2. A great reminder that Christ’s way is the only way.
