In the short film The Narrow Path, Jodiah is faced with the decisions of his past and how his decisions not only affected his family, but the entire world as he knew it.
Jodiah was faced with a simple but profound choice: could Yeshua (the Hebrew name for Jesus) actually be the Son of God - Messiah as foretold by the prophets of old?
Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth and the life; no one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6)
But why would God make salvation such a narrow path?"
It would seem like God would simply let every “good person” into heaven. When we hear the word narrow, we tend to think of how intolerant that sounds, that a loving God would only accept a select few into His presence.
The path is narrow because we live in a fallen world. The Bible says that, “All men have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God.” (Romans 3:23)
And yet, God sent his own son, Jesus, to die for us and deliver us from sin.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)
Jesus made it clear: the path to eternal life is open to everyone who merely asks for Him to be Savior and Lord of their lives.
God offers salvation to everyone who accepts it, but it is on His terms. We must come the way He has provided. We cannot create our own paths or come to a holy God based on our own efforts.
It is our choice, to take the wide road that leads to destruction, paved with the attractions of the world, or to take the narrow path, that leads to an abundant life.
“Behold I stand at the door and knock,
If anyone hears my voice and opens the door,
I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.”
