Only Disciples on the Jesus Way

The Jesus WayAs a kid, I had this reoccurring dream that I was trying to escape from a bathroom inside a house that was not mine. I always tried to get out through the air duct system but always got stuck. This is where the nightmare part set in. I couldn’t get through. I couldn’t make.

In Matthew 7:13-14, Jesus says that the Way to eternal life is difficult. He says that the way to eternal life is narrow. He says that FEW will enter by that gate but many will go down the path that leads to destruction.

Here is what we can know from the words of Christ, as He is wrapping up what we refer to as the Sermon on the Mount:

There are only disciples on the Jesus Way.

The Jesus Way is the only way to eternal life.

The Jesus Way is the difficult way in this life.

The life of a disciple on the Jesus way will not be easy. If it were easy, many people would be following after Him, but that isn’t the case.

Are you a disciple on the Jesus Way or are you the many on the wide path to destruction?
