The narrow path

I saw this dream on the night of 9th February 2019. In the dream, I was exhorting a new believer on the narrow path that Jesus advises us to follow so that we may inherit eternal life. I saw myself standing in a narrow passage of one of the floors of a building. There was little room to maneuver. There were many bends in this path and I had to be careful while walking lest I trip and fall. Every now and then, the walk seemed to be more difficult. The new believer stood to one side watching me with concern and amazement. The dream ended there.

This dream was easy to interpret. It was a graphic description of what Jesus says in Matthew 7, verses 13 & 14.
"Enter in by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leads to destruction, and many are those who enter in by it. How narrow is the gate, and restricted is the way that leads to life! Few are those who find it."

Restricted is the way.....(narrow is the way- KJV)

Though we as believers in Jesus Christ are called to look to the Author and Finisher of our faith Jesus Christ, new believers also look to them who have been believers and ministers for long to see how they walk their Christian faith. Sadly many are not good examples and this affects the spiritual growth of new believers.

This is what the writer of Hebrews says,

Remember your leaders, men who spoke to you the word of God, and considering the results of their conduct, imitate their faith. (Hebrews 13:7)

Also Paul, the Apostle writes to the Corinthian church,

Therefore I urge you, imitate me. (1 Corinthians 4:16)
Imitate me, just as I also imitate Christ. (1 Corinthians 11:1)

It is God's desire that those who are ministers and those who have been believers for long, that they be good examples to them who have recently accepted Jesus as Savior and Lord.

No time to sulk in the "last days"

It was one of those weeks where I was ill and having abdominal problems- indigestion, reflux and bloating. By Thursday, I was in bad shape by the time I finished work and was at home by 5 pm. There was an intercessory prayer in Church at 7.30 pm, but I was in no mood to go and I had a reason for God. I was unwell and anyone would understand. So I was on my couch, sulking, telling God, I needed a break. The next day was a worship day (Friday, in the gulf countries); I had a sermon to preach, conduct a Bible Study and there were a few new believers getting baptized (a rest was justified). I did not want to miss all that, though the baptisms and preaching would be done by the main pastor. As I rested, there was this song that came suddenly to me without me thinking of it. It was a Malayalam song which spoke about the Lord's coming and how very little time was left to do the Lord's work. I shut out the song from my mind and continued resting and slept for more than an hour, putting my mobile on silent mode.

When I woke up after a good rest and checked my Whatsapp messages, there was a video message from our pastor. It was a song sung by a young boy who was differently abled. The lyrics of the song spoke about how he still trusted in the Lord Jesus Christ despite his disabilities and his weaknesses. It spoke of how the potter had all rights over the clay to create what he desired and how he would still worship the Lord despite his developmental abnormalities. Tears flowed from my eyes and I felt ashamed of how easily I could justify resting, when compared to this boy, I was far healthier. I did not have to think twice then whether to go for the intercessory prayer. The Holy Spirit had dealt with me. The prayer was a blessing, though my abdomen was not well yet. That night as I slept, the Lord spoke to me in a dream and said that all things would go well the next day and so it was. Despite not recovering fully, I could conduct the Bible Study, water baptize 3 believers and preach a sermon. Our pastor and a few believers faithfully prayed for me and God upheld me by his righteous right hand. Praise God.
