Route- A way or course taken in getting from a starting point to a destination. Way
Life brings about a choice.
Narrow-Small, limited in extent, amount, or scope
“Enter through the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the road is broad that leads to destruction. How narrow is the gate and difficult the road that leads to life, and few find it.
Find your destination. Get on the right turn. I come to help the youth find your way to a prosperous life. Jesus said “I am the way the truth and the life.
The road to life is less traveled and heard of it doesn't seems to be popular
We have choices in this life. On one hand, we can chases after fame and fortune; on the other hand, we can follow after spiritual principles. The right choice is clear, but the decision is ours.
Introduction- We are living in a society that has an great influence on the children and youth life and especially the inexperience. We are living in a day in time where right is wrong and wrong is right and it seems to be confusing to the way of life which is corrupt in this age and time. Especially some of our youth that are easily influenced by their peers because their way seems to be popular instead of the godly God fearing life which seems to be difficult and complicated and don't seems to work for our generation but it only seems to work for our ancestor but I come to beg the difference “For the lord is good; and his truth endureth to all generations
Context- This passage comes at the end of what is known as the “Sermon on the Mount” (). Jesus has already introduced the idea of the “kingdom of Heaven” (4:17), but this sermon explains what life is like in that kingdom. In large part, Jesus explains how the value system of the world is completely opposite of the value system of His kingdom. He also explains how even the religious law-keeping of the day was counter to the kingdom of Heaven. The present passage then begins a section (7:13-27) where Jesus draws a contrast between those who are truly citizens of this kingdom and those who are not. Jesus explains that the way of God’s kingdom is like a road less traveled. The concept of two ways—one leading to life and the other to destruction

Message- It seems when trying to live a godly life people seems to walkout from your life because you don’t fit into their category or not their type. When picking this narrow road that leads to life can be lonely because everybody don’t take the exit and everybody can’t go where you going anyways. Jesus explains it that only a few find this exit. Meaning there’s going to be some people you got to leave behind and some things that is not of god behind and everybody is not willing to leave the old life behind. We live in a world that have things in life that our flesh desires but that’s when you ask God and talk to him and ask him to help you mastered your flesh as his son Jesus did which made him so superior than others. I just don’t want the norm but I want the favor of God and his supernatural power that make me unique. I’m apart of Gods uniqueness . One of a kind
Text- 13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: - Jesus explains how to enter into his kingdom and gives us divine instruction which exit to take but since we have a choice many take advantage of the choice call life and not realizing how important and healthy it is for our life and take the path of destruction so whatever you do please Don’t miss your exit. It is a difference between easy and hard. Jesus shows us a contrast of those who are citizens of the kingdom and those who are not which is totally opposite.
Why is it that broad is a easy way but still leads to destruction and narrow is an hard way that lead to life? Don't seems to make sense to some But many seems to take the shortcut way to life that still don’t get us to our destination but instead it leads us down a dark path which gets us on another back road that we thought would get us their fast but it took me too whole different way.

Everybody can't endure the way to life and seems impatiently and decides to take shortcuts and skip the ride that will sooth all your doubt and calms all your fear and that will give you peace in the midst of your storm. Am I talking to anybody in the room that you ended up taking what you thought an easy way but it took you down the wrong path and you had no choice but to come back to the road of life. Take the route that Christ has prescribed because my thoughts are not your thoughts neither are your ways my ways declares your way. Our way to life will keep us stuck. There is a choice in every aspect of your life it your choice to make the right decision. But the good news if you consult him and make in the center of your life he will lead and guide you into all truth. Trust in the lord and lean not to thine own understanding but acknowledge him in all your ways and he will direct your path. James said if any man lacks of wisdom let him ask of God that giveth to all men. Seek him wholeheartedly. It is the difference between the hard and the easy way. It is the difference between the long and the short way. It is the difference between the disciplined and the undisciplined way.It is the difference between the thoughtful and the thoughtless way. It is the difference between the thoughtful and the thoughtless way It is easy to miss the gate

Example- Adam and Eve when God gave them permission to eat of any tree but the tree of knowledge good and evil and the middle and the serpent came and deceive Eve telling her she want die she will be like God knowing good from evil and she offered some to her husband and they ate it and got kicked out of the garden because of the choice of disobedience. God has given us a choice of good and evil.
