Which path are you on?

Here in Botswana foot paths are everywhere (see below) so it makes sense in our presentation of the gospel to use an analogy of paths.

We present Matthew 7:13-14 "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."

We draw this in the sand or on a piece of paper with a wide path with lots of people on it and an arrow leading to destruction;  and then a narrow path with few people on it and an arrow leading to life. We explain that we are all on the wide path according to Romans 3:23 and Psalm 51:5 and talk about the only way to get from the wide path to the narrow path is through repenting and believing in the gospel (Mark 1:15 and I Corinthian 15:1-5) and so we draw a cross between the 2 paths.

We recently taught this at the Friday children's ministry at Gaborone Baptist Church and 15 of them asked Jesus to come live in their hearts. We also challenged them to share this good newswith someone this week.

Maybe you have your own way of presenting the gospel to those around you and maybe you don't. I challenge you to share the gospel with someone around you today. If you have questions about how to do this or you want to accept Jesus yourself, please feel free to write us at bltast@hotmail.com

We challenged the kids to share 2 paths with someone they know
so they wrote their names and the names of those they would share
with this week.
