“Broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.” Matthew 7:13-14

This sounds harsh in the ears of the old man, who would not have the law made use of in these gospel times, either to the converted or unconverted; and yet to the old man the law, and not the gospel more especially belongs. Paul, the great preacher of the gospel, made use of the law to rouse unconverted Felix from his security (Acts 24:25), and to warn the converted Romans from falling into it again (Romans 8:13).

Which way do you walk? Examine yourself. Is it in the narrow way? Are you quite sure of it? Venture not to go any farther at random. It is a matter of great consequence; if you will be safe, try better for it; you may easily be deceived. Alas! You are surely in the broad way to destruction if you still love and are conformed to the world. Are you but indifferent with regard to the things of God, relishing more the vanities, pleasures, companies, treasures, and honors of this world? You are not in the good narrow way that leads unto life. O consider this well and stop short before it is too late, and you drop into the bottomless pit of perdition. In Christ, you are safe; but without union to Jesus, religion is but a name.

Be Ready Always...

to give a reason for the Hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15).  When you can’t share the gospel with your words, share it by leaving tracts that tell people about God's grace.

When leaving a tract, always be diligent to pray about the short gospel message. Pray that it be found by someone who is in need of Jesus’ saving grace, and pray that the person will have a tender heart and open ears to receive the gift Jesus desires to give them.  

By the power of the Holy Spirit, even a small tract can help in turning a broken sinner from darkness to light.
