The Road to the Blessed Life

The Blessed Life

God has placed before us a road that leads to the blessed life. You need to choose whether or not you are going to walk on that road. Jesus said: “You can enter God’s Kingdom only through the narrow gate. The highway to hell is broad, and its gate is wide for the many who choose the easy way. But the gateway to life is small, and the road is narrow, and only a few ever find it.” (Matthew 7:13-14). The secret to happiness lies in being on the road to the blessed life. What road are you on?

Robert Frost wrote in his poem The Road Not Taken:

  • I shall be telling this with a sigh,
  • somewhere ages and ages hence:
  • Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
  • I took the one less traveled by,
  • And that has made all the difference.

You’ve got two choices: The world’s road offers money, fame, power, popularity, illicit sex, drugs and alcohol – as the road to happiness, but the end of that road is death and destruction. The road less traveled is the narrow road that leads to life… to the blessed life.

When you choose to obey God and His Word, you are choosing to live the blessed life. God has given us so many rich promises in His Word. My prayer for you is that the Lord would help you to experience everything in the abundant, blessed life that He has made available for you. Live the blessed life!
