To Ponder:

Oh! look before you, and see where it leads! “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!” Matthew 7:13-14. This, my friends, and this alone–is the way of salvation. Is this the way in which you are walking? Or is it the smooth, easy downward road to destruction? You may slide along that without exertion or difficulty, like a dead fish floating with the stream; but oh! look before you, and see where it leads! Most people form some easy system of religion, from their own vain imaginations, suited to their depraved taste, indulgent to their sloth and carnality, and favorable to their lusts–and this they call ‘Christianity’! But this is not the religion of the Bible! This is not the way to life laid out by God in His Word–but it is the smooth downward road to destruction! (Samuel Davies, “Saints Saved with Difficulty; and the Certain Perdition of the Wicked”)
