When you have made that firm dedication to Jesus Christ, there is no turning back. There is no leniency to falter in your path. That is what makes it a narrow road. You must keep your eyes fixed firmly upon Jesus. You must continue on no matter the bumps or bruises that may come.
Jesus said to him, “No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.”
You are not someone who looks back and then veers off the path, as one who is wayward. You will continue on doing good, being a holy, and righteous example for the lost. Through every rough patch of the road, you will reflect the Lord Jesus Christ Himself.
And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. Galatians 6:9
Keep moving forward, keep trudging up that mountain called “difficult.” The Lord has prepared the path that is ahead. He will never leave you or fail in strengthening you up to the top.
Now who is there to harm you if you are zealous for what is good? But even if you should suffer for righteousness’ sake, you will be blessed. Have no fear of them, nor be troubled, but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect, having a good conscience, so that, when you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ may be put to shame. 1 Peter 3:13-16
