The Road Less Traveled

Anyone who is saved is on the road less traveled. Why do they call it the road less traveled? It's because the road to heaven is narrow and many people aren't on it. It's foolish to believe that everyone goes to heaven when the Bible says that many people are on the wide and broad road to destruction. There's only two roads a person can be on in this life but the right road to be on is the one that leads to heaven. (Proverbs 14:12- Before every man there lies a wide and pleasant road that seems right but ends in death.) Sometimes it literally feels like you're the only one living for Christ, but know that there are others who turned from a godless life to follow Christ. Even if it means you have to be alone do whatever it takes to make sure that when you see God you will not hear “depart from me.” When I first got saved it literally felt like I had no friends, I did but they weren’t saved and I couldn’t really relate to them much. I prayed for godly friends and thankfully God sent me some. They didn’t come right away but they did come and I’m grateful because now I can’t even count how many saved friends I have.

Sometimes when you’re on the road less traveled people will think you’re crazy but it’s okay because faith is risky, but unbelief is deadly.
Genesis 6
Genesis 7
(Hebrews 11:7- Noah was another who trusted God. When he heard God’s warning about the future, Noah believed him even though there was then no sign of a flood, and wasting no time, he built the ark and saved his family. Noah’s belief in God was in direct contrast to the sin and disbelief of the rest of the world—which refused to obey—and because of his faith he became one of those whom God has accepted.)
They saw Noah building that ark and out of all the people in the world only Noah’s family was saved. There’s no way they didn’t see the ark because it was huge. (1 Peter 3:20- spirits of those who, long before in the days of Noah, had refused to listen to God, though He waited patiently for them while Noah was building the ark. Yet only eight persons were saved from drowning in that terrible flood.)

1 Kings 18
They wanted to blame Elijah but the reason why Israel was doomed was because they were worshipping a false God. God states many times in the Bible that He will have no God before Him and that's He's the only one and true God. That's the first of the 10 Commandments which shows how important it is. What was crazy to me is that the people were cutting themselves with knives and swords until they were bleeding. What type of crazy ritual stuff is that? The things that's crazy to me is people worship all these false gods and do crazy things to get their attention and all we have to do is call on the Lord's name without doing anything crazy. Elijah was the only prophet of the Lord who was left and he still didn’t turn his back on God. Even though he was alone Elijah continued to stay on the right path.
 
God is a way maker, when we were all doomed to hell, He made a way for us. He made a way for anyone who calls on the name Jesus to be saved. God made a way for those in darkness to come to the light. (John 3:36- And all who trust Him—God’s Son—to save them have eternal life; those who don’t believe and obey him shall never see heaven, but the wrath of God remains upon them.”)
Isaiah 9
John 3:1-21
(Matthew 7:13-14- Heaven can be entered only through the narrow gate! The highway to hell is broad, and its gate is wide enough for all the multitudes who choose its easy way. But the Gateway to Life is small, and the road is narrow, and only a few ever find it.) The fact that the Bible says only few are on the narrow path just makes me want to make sure I'm doing right by God. Like not just checking myself once a week but literally everyday to make sure that I make it into the Kingdom. It’s important to think about where your soul is going after you die. Keep going down the turn up life path and Satan will have you turn up right in hell because loving the world will kill you. (Proverbs 14:12- Before every man there lies a wide and pleasant road that seems right but ends in death.)

It’s so important to surround yourself with likeminded believers who are on the same path as you, those who are on the straight and narrow road. This doesn’t mean to just cut off all of your friends who aren’t saved, but if they influence you to sin even after you told them you don’t do xyz anymore you may want to distance yourself. Remember that the devil will use your own friends, family etc to tempt you. You may be the only Christian in your friend’s life and you don’t want to ruin your witness by doing things you know that you shouldn’t be doing. Somebody's gotta be the difference and live for God, the road to heaven is straight and narrow and only a few are on it. Be one of the few. Ask God to remove anything/anyone hindering you from strengthening your relationship with Him. I did that and I started losing friends. It sucked but I realized that everyone can’t go where God is taking you and people just don’t want to be around you once they see that you gave your life to God. Remember that it’s not you that people don’t like it’s Jesus. The Bible says that people will hate us because of Him. Us talking about Jesus shines the light on those who are living in darkness and people don’t like that. (John 1:5- His life is the light that shines through the darkness—and the darkness can never extinguish it.) Before I got saved I thought I loved Jesus but my actions proved that I didn’t. I didn’t want to hear people talk about God. I’d see tweets about God and hurry up and scroll passed them so I wouldn’t have to read them. I wasn’t ready to give my life to God yet and I knew those tweets would make me start thinking about how I wasn’t living right. So many claim that they love God but what they do proves that they don’t.

The road to heaven is narrow and as you continue on the right path God keeps working on you and stripping away things that don’t please Him. Everything doesn’t just go away at once, once we think we’re good in a certain area God reveals something else that we do that He doesn’t like. Sometimes it’s things that you don’t even realize that you do and that’s why we should always be led by the Holy Spirit so we can do things that please God.
