What does it take to follow Christ? Matthew 7:13-15 paints a different picture of Christianity than we typically see from the TV and many churches these days. Following Christ is often seen as a way to the easy life, comfort, and the Promised Land. But these verses talk about the narrow gate and few finding it. Wide is the path that leads to destruction though. Watch this video and think if it is something you’d sign up for. To join the Royal Marines, I’d definitely say you have to enter through a narrow gate.
After watching that video, you get a good idea of what is expected if you want to become a Royal Marine. There are no surprises and questions as to what it will take or cast. But how clear are we with what becoming a Christian looks like, calls for, requires? So this week, I want to hear from you. What does it take to follow Christ? If you had someone ask you that question, how would you answer? If you made a promo video like this one, what would it look like? Take these questions seriously and look to the Bible to see what it has to say and then look at your life and see if you’re really walking the narrow path or getting caught up in the flow leading to destruction.
