When the term accessibility and mobility are made mention off, places and traveling and ways are some of the words that start coming in our mind. A road cannot just exist. It exists with a reason of leading to a place and destination(s). However, there are always choices and decisions involved in between the journey.
Jesus raises a very profound statement that no other person has made when He said that He is the truth, way and life and that no one gets ti the father except through Him. Him being the way nullify the statement that the routes can be many with one destination. There is a specificity in this way.
Narrow is the gate into the path that leads to life while wide is the gate to destruction. Few locate the narrow gate while many are able to locate the wider gate. Obviously, the smaller a thing is the more the details and the more attention it requires into details. By so saying, locating the gate is not all but that the starting point. Additionally, Grace gives us the freedom and only those that enter through the gate will testify that there is freedom. Freedom without responsibility is not worth giving.
Walking in this way calls for a daily evaluation and monitoring and the guide has been given to us but the success of the journey is dependent on the cooperation we exhibit. The HolyGhost is the guide. We yield ourselves to him and we are guaranteed of a victorious walk but when we abandon Him we lose.
Though we are nit perfectionists, there is a call to working out our salvation with fear and tremble. We’ve got to pledge our allegiance to Him and mean it. If only we live right and in light in public and privately we walk in dark then we are deviating from the path. A walk in the path is a true illustration of a life worth the death of Christ. And the question that should hit our mind every now and then is: is my walk based in His footsteps? What would Jesus do?

In his book ‘evangelism by fire’ of 90 & 91 Reinhard Bonnke narrates of a talk he had with a ‘spiritual counsellor’ in Lesotho l. This man handled problems and difficulties of his flock by calming them such that when going home they felt good. However, he didn’t acknowledge the person of Jesus Christ as God.
An analogy is given: a man who is in a wrecked ship that is sinking does not need a pill to quicken his death and make it peaceful. He doesn’t need sympathy either. He needs someone who’ll get hold of his hand and rescue him. He needs a saviour not an equalizer to mute his shouting for help.
Likewise, the world does not need sympathy but a saviour who’ll save it from perishing. Additionally, the coat has already been paid by the Lord our God by His death at the cross. The world will only know this and even reminded of it by us who’ve realized the mystery. For how will they know Him unless they are told and how shall they go unless they are sent.
How blessed are feet if them that carry the gospel of good news to the poor. We’ve already been sent by Jesus Christ our Redeemer who’ve made us the ambassadors of his kingdom. You’re within a domain and the only thing needed is actualizing this. Your audience is all over you.

Imagine the working of a binocular. You look through it and see the amazement in the way it functions. The setting of the adjustment of the lens and other parts. If it is assigned to a rescue team that is in the process of tracing a lost person or treasure. The main purpose will be what is being located through it, not the binocular itself. It leads to something that wonderful and precious.
Many are the times that our councils smash us with very discouraging news of how the city will run out of water for a couple of hours, days and at times weeks in the rural area. The reason being repairs at the source of the water or treatment plant which handles water first from the source before distribution takes occurrence.
To trace the root cause of any problem, the route towards the acquisition of a solution starts by evaluating the roots or the source of the issue at hand. By so saying I don’t mean that the problem may originate from the source but rather the source could also be the solution. Moses understood this concept so well. God tells him that because they are stiff-necked people, He won’t go with them lest he destroys them on the way. But that is not all. He promises them that he will send an angel with them, he will fight for them and even bring them to the land flowing with milk and honey. Moses is not moved with that decision and they preferred to stay rather than go without God. It would have been easy for them and they would have been comfortable.
The reality is that the heart of man cannot be satisfied by material possession but it requires to connect with its maker: God. Blessing and all that we have act as an avenue pointing us to God. The paramount thing is to know the creator and be related to him, not what he has created. These blessing are binoculars pointing us to the transcendent one whom it is what matters most. In this case the source is Christ and not until we are connected to Him we will never have cure in our lives.
