I have walked the path of least resistance many times. I made the excuse of wanting to live a peace filled life. It really was a lukewarm way of trying to fit in the world. I am glad my Lord will not make excuses for my evil ways and He is faithful to point out my inconsistencies.
From the Evil Path Set Free
Where the road leads they travel with the flow.
It is decided by the majority which way they go.
They have favorite saying that justify their stand;
Things like, “It was meant to be” or “It was out of my hands.”
It is almost unthinkable to cause a godly stir,
Even to be more convincing they will use God’s Word.
Such as “I must live in peace,” or” I must love my brother,”
“There is not anyone any better than another.”
“All fall short and all are sinners,” or Everybody makes mistakes.”
They will say, “I cannot push too hard or the reed will break.”
Yes there are many good answers that give good excuse,
For a sinful or lazy attitude; a passive life of no real use
But you will find some travel in the opposite direction.
They disrupt the flow at every intersection.
They are a constant obstacle that the world hates to see.
These are the one in service to me.
They say what God’s Word says, they do as Jesus did.
They do the opposite of what the world is.
They give instead of hording they look up instead of down.
They guard closely the truth, they stand their ground.
They angrily will fight to help out another,
And they will hold out their arms for a cover.
They cause disturbance in the heavenly for their prayers go before them.
They trust their leader Jesus and they adore Him.
Their lives are given to live for Him who died so they could be.
From the flow of the evil world’s path set free.
Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
