Choose the hard pathway of holiness

Suffering is the key to the pathway of Godliness; but a life of ease filled with pleasure is a wide freeway that leads to perdition and the gates of hell.

Jesus said, Straight is the gate that leads to life and few they be that find it; but wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction and many will go thereby.

Lot choose the easy green pastures that led him directly to Sodom and Gomorrah, but Abraham choose the rocky dry lands of holiness.

Brethren, be lovers of God and not lovers of pleasure as nearly all people including many so called Christians have become in these last days.

Choose the hard pathway of holiness and godliness and lay up for yourselves treasures in Heaven, not pleasure on earth.

Pleasure is a snare by which Satan captures many unwary travelers.
