Never Look Back

Narrow  is the way that leads to life and few there be that find it. It is indeed a narrow path, but it is hard packed and well-trodden. For all who walk the narrow way, follow in the same footsteps, they follow their Lord.

Jesus Christ, the gate whereby you enter–there is no other way to enter into life everlasting, but by the Blood of Jesus Christ. Once entered by the Blood, you must follow in His footsteps; for He alone knoweth the way to the Father. I AM the way, the truth and the life, no man cometh to the Father, but by Me.

You are in good company on that lonely path. Those who have gone before were men and women of strong faith and utmost integrity. They weren’t afraid to be different and were not ashamed to declare allegiance to their Lord, King Jesus. Who once bore the shame of the world, that you might become righteous.

Those who have gone before you, found the narrow way and are seated with Him in heavenly places, at the right hand of the Father.

Ruling and reigning

With Him

Whose footsteps they tracked

Never to look back

Never look back!

“Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is easy, that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard, that leads to life, and those who find it are few.” Matthew 7:13-14

“But God, who is rich in mercy, out of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead through our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up with him, and made us sit with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved, through faith; and this is not your own doing, it is the gift of God, not because of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:4-10

“Blessed are those whose way is blameless, who walk in the law of the Lord! Blessed are those who keep his testimonies, who seek him with their whole heart, who also do no wrong, but walk in his ways!” Psalms 119:1-3
