When we originally receive the free gift of salvation, we begin the journey of faith. It also begins us on the narrow way. (See John 3:16-17; Romans 3:23, 6:23, 10:8-10)
"Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it." (Matthew 7:13-14, NKJV)
As a believer and follower of Jesus, I have been learning more about the narrow way in my own walk with Him.
The longer we are on our faith journeys, the more narrow becomes the path.
"And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God." (Romans 12:2, NKJV)
"But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord." (2 Corinthians 3:18, NKJV)
We become more holy in our behavior. We become more obedient to our Father. (See 1 Peter 1:13-16)
Ultimately, we become more like Him in every way. As He is, so are we in this world. (See 1 John 4:17)
Jesus is the way, the truth, the life. (See John 14:6)
