Abounding in Christ April 16 of Abounding in Christ

The hard pathway is the right pathway

Everything in life requires each of us to exert effort and the effort sometimes seems to become extremely difficult and unbearable.

This is especially true of work that God has called us to do.

This is why so few have stayed the course in the work of the high calling of God.

It is the basic nature of our weak flesh to take the easiest pathway that leads downhill to sin and destruction.

Most of the time the hard pathway is the right pathway because it is usually the pathway that leads uphill to a higher moral plain.

Brethren, the scripture calls Jesus the mountain of the Lord and not the valley of the Lord.

Sin is called the valley of sin.

Follow the right pathway that goes up the steep incline to the mountain of God, no turning back. Amen.
