 The Narrow Path


“It is far better for me to trust in the name of the Lord than to put my trust in man,” says the eighth verse of the 118th Psalm.


For 37 years I had trusted in the hand of man and walked my own path which was quickly leading to the path of destruction and the road to hell. If it were not for the loving hand of the Lord and His saving grace, who knows where I would be today.


There is a song lyric that says, “I will trust in the mercy of the Lord forever, I will sing, I will sing. I will sing of the mercy of the Lord forever, I will sing, I will sing. And with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness, thy faithfulness.” This is exactly what the faithful witnesses are doing as they go out door to door through the leadership of Pastor Jonathan and his team. They reach out to people who often don’t know or discern between their right hand and their left. As they hear the good news of the gospel, it can open their ears and soften their hearts.


Oh, what a merciful God we serve. There is nothing more satisfying than to see a heart converted and come to trust in the Lord. I was a lost sheep going astray for 37 long years, “But now in Christ Jesus we who were sometimes a far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. For He is our Peace.” Ephesians 2:3, 4a


What a great price He paid upon the cross for you and me that we might be totally forgiven and transformed to now walk a new path, though it is straight and narrow, it leads to eternal life. We are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens of the saints, and part of the household of God.


We are built upon the foundation of the Apostles and Prophets, Jesus Christ being the chief cornerstone. This cornerstone cannot be moved or shaken. We can fully trust in the Lord Jesus and the finished work of Calvary. “The Lord lives and blessed be my rock and let the God of my salvation be exalted!”



Keep on singing,

Pastor John B Branson

Your weather just got better.
