During morning prayer while praying for the lost on my list, I asked God to have them cross paths today with righteousness. I saw it this way: As they travel the wide road, Matthew 7:13, with many others like them, they won’t know there’s any difference. They think everyone is like them and they’re all going the right way. However, if they come upon a crossing road which is well lit and presents a great contrast to their darkness, they might reconsider the way they’re going. They will notice the people on this narrow path, Matthew 7:14, only a few of them, but they are very happy and peaceful. Maybe they’ll want to get off the dark road and, “Taste and see that the Lord is good,” Psalms 34:8, on the bright road.
As we travel the narrow road every day, people who are on the broad road are crossing our paths; they see us as they pass. My prayer is that they will see something in me that will make them want to change directions, (repent), and come join me. How about you?
