Narrow Road

Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. Matthew 7:13

May this video encourage us to consider what lane we are in, and vear to the one God has called us very clearly to be in. May we study the Bible, and fervantly, particularly in an age of rampant false teaching, but more than just for memorization-for application!

Francis Chan-The New Middle Road

Note: People often misunderstand videos like this. Don't take this video out of context, this is not a theological debate, works do not save us. We put the Bible to practice tangibly because we are saved, and because over and over Jesus exemplified and laid out, how we are to LIVE as Christians. Radical is not a word that should, when expressed, tickle our ears with fury or frustration, but rather fan the flame with excitement in returning the gift that was so amply given, through the cross, to us.
With that in mind, radical has no place in our vocabulary, just obedience out of love.

So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. James 2:17 (English Standard Version)
