This Way Home

Preacher:
Passage: Matthew 7:13–14

This weekend we continue our sermon series, The Bible’s Greatest Hits, by looking at a well-known section in the Sermon on the Mount. I have been preparing a message from Matthew 7:13-14, and let me tell you, this text is a true stunner!

Jesus invites us to leave behind the mass appeal of the easy way and instead to find eternal life on the hard road. It sounds difficult, but we must understand that Jesus is showing us the way home. Without his direction, we would be lost on a road that takes us nowhere good. Discipleship is the only journey that leads us back to God. Do you desire to be in his presence? Are you searching for the way to eternal life? Jesus has marked the way for us, and we will examine the kind of conviction that is required to follow him home to God.
