The Narrow Way

As I walked back from my meeting in the center this morning, I stopped at the big statue that stands in the most prominent place in the city. It is a larger-than-life statue of Lenin.


In history, so many people have offered false hopes: paths that supposedly lead to a better life. In 1917, Lenin promised a utopian society, one in which all would find their happiness in their equality. He really believed it. This statue commemorates a leader who changed much of the world. Lenin was a perspicacious man, but he got it all very wrong. He misjudged human nature, and he assumed that this life is an end unto itself. History has proven him wrong on the former, and the latter mistake he sadly found out himself.


I look forward to the day when many, or even a few, will believe in the One who has come and offers true life, and lasting happiness.



"For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few." (Matt7:14 ESV)
