Following Jesus Is the Way to Eternal Life

by J.C. Ryle

We have no reason to be discouraged and cast down, if the religion we profess is not popular, and few agree with us. We must remember the words of our Lord Jesus Christ… “The gate is narrow.” Repentance, and faith in Christ, and holiness of life have never been fashionable. The true flock of Christ has always been small… This is “the narrow way.” Surely it is better to enter into life eternal with a few, than to go to “destruction” with a great company.

We don't pray for
a lighter cross,
but a stronger back 
It's not about the
comfort, good life,
and security 
You will feel pain but he's
breaking you for maturity
Yeah, believe
he's for you

He is no fool
who gives
what he cannot keep
to gain that
which
he cannot lose.

What Is the Christian Life About?

by Brother Andrew

I have come to see clearly that life is more than self. It is more than doing what I want, striving for what will benefit me, dreaming of all I can be. Life is all about my relationship with God. There is no higher calling, no loftier dream, and no greater goal than to live, breathe, and be poured out for Jesus Christ.

And the
disciples
were filled
with joy
and with
the Holy Spirit.

Acts 13:52 NIV 
Verse
Matthew 13:44-46 ESV

“The Kingdom of Heaven is like a treasure that a man discovered hidden in a field. In his excitement, he hid it again and sold everything he owned to get enough money to buy the field. Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like a merchant on the lookout for choice pearls. When he discovered a pearl of great value, he sold everything he owned and bought it! 

Verse
2 Corinthians 5:14-15 NIV 

For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again. 

Verse
Luke 14:26 NIV 

“If anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters—yes, even their own life—such a person cannot be my disciple.”
