I parked my car at the church to make a few copies.  A few minutes later I came out of the church and was shocked to realize that my car had been stolen!  As I ran to the road to see which way the car thief had gone, I found my car sitting in the ravine across the road.   I had forgotten to engage my parking brake.

If you treat your life the way I treated my car you will find the same principle will apply.  Your life will follow the path of least resistance.  Unless you make a choice to follow Jesus, your life, by default, will follow the wide, easy and much used path that leads to ruin.

Jesus says in Matthew 7:13 “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. 14 Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.

Jesus is not looking for associates, or admirers.  He is looking for followers; for those who are prepared to live a life that is rigorously attentive to following His teachings and His example.  What will be the course of your life?  Will you follow the path of least resistance or will you follow the path Jesus has laid out for your life?
