Scripture: Matthew 7:13-15 Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it. Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.
Devotional: The “all roads lead to God” mindset is a clear picture of the wide and broad road that leads to destruction. Many are being deceived and are on the path to eternal ruin. And there are so many prevailing voices that affirm this mindset, drawing the multitudes to an essential death march.
As you follow Christ, you can be reminded that you are going against the flow, you are on the narrow path. And although it may not be the easiest most well -worn path, it is the road the leads to eternal life. Be encouraged as you journey fellow traveler, and beware of those that would seek to draw you off the right path.
- Who would you consider to be false prophets in today’s culture? How can you avoid them?
- How might you help others to avoid being victims of them as well?
