In Touch Daily Devotional
by Dr. Charles Stanley


February 23-24, 2008 – The Narrow Road Matthew 16:24-27 

            The Father has opened a way for sinners to be forgiven and set on the path of righteousness—namely, through faith in Jesus Christ. Placing trust in Him as our personal Savior makes us members of God’s family and takes us immediately onto the narrow road, which is only for His followers. 

            As we journey on this heavenward highway, the Holy Spirit acts as our guide and teaches us what we need to know. Through Him, we develop the ability to see beyond the temporal to the eternal. With spiritual eyes, we will catch glimpses of the Lord’s majesty, comprehend the depth of our Savior’s love for us, and experience the invisible, powerful presence of the Spirit. We will witness the awe-inspiring transformation of ordinary, pride-filled human beings into humble, loving ambassadors for Christ. Our minds will grasp the truths of God’s Word, and we will hear Him speaking to us through it. On the broad road, none of these things are possible. 

            Despite such amazing blessings, we at times all wander from the Lord’s will. We might be drawn away by the glitter of material things, the temporary satisfaction of self-indulgence, or a desire to be part of the crowd. Whatever we hope to find outside of God’s plan proves illusive and temporary. Only by walking with Christ on the path of godliness will we find the security and contentment we crave. 

            If you are drifting in your Christian life, allowing the world’s priorities to direct your steps, then you need to turn back. Jesus calls you to deny yourself and commit to following Him alone.
