Are you weary?

In Pilgrim's Progress, Christian and his friend were walking on the Kings highway for a long time and their feet were sooo sore. They saw the broad way right beside them. It looked so soft and comforting to their feet. They just wanted a little break. It appeared to paralel the Kings Highway so they decided to walk on it for a while - but the broadway got farther and farther from the Kings highway. Christian and his friend got had a lot of heart ache before they found their way back.

Likewise, sometimes as we are walking on the narrow path, it becomes tiring and we get weary, yet Jesus calls us to walk the straight and narrow path.

Jesus told us that "strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it." - Matt 7:14

When we get burdened with our troubles, it is a reminder to turn our eyes to Christ because, his yoke is easy, and my burden is light. (Matt 11:30)

We can be confident because "Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it." (1 Thes 5:14)

Phil 1:6 reminds us that we can be confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ. Amen!


Remember to savor your Saviour,  :-)
