Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.
But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
the cliche to uniqueness has always been the conundrum about everyone dying to be different , resulting in everyone being the same . when it comes to living for Christ , that doesnt apply because the very concept of Christianity embodies "difference" . being in this world but not of this world . how easy is living wrong ? how easy is living right ? which path screams difference ? uniqueness & sanctification are mutual ; theologically . God calls us to be set apart . this remains a constant struggle for me . the plight to be apart of the " set apart few " is WEARY . im a fleshly being / creature / person , and im obligated to subjugate ALL of that . Lord knows . i slip & stumble and days i want to quit especially when im dealing with the ever present moral hypochondriasis issue or my frustration with trying to live in both realms of this world .
THE PARADOX !
