ONLY TWO WAYS So the Bible tells us—one broad, the other narrow; one leading to destruction, the other to life. Many tread the one; few the other. Reader, which is your way? They are well defined. “Broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat.…Straight is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it” (Mt. 7:13-14).
ONLY TWO CLASSES Many sub-classes, no doubt, in men’s sight, but only two in God’s sight. The difference between them is very plain. “He that believeth on Him (the only begotten Son of God) is NOT CONDEMNED; but he that believeth not is CONDEMNED ALREADY” (Jn. 3:18). The former class is on the narrow road; the latter, on the broad. To which do you belong?
ONLY TWO SIDES Which are you on? Christ says; “He that is not with Me is against Me” (Mt. 12:30). The old cry of “Christ or Barabbas?” has not died down yet. Its terms may alter, but its meaning is ever the same. Christ or the world? Christ or self? This world or the world to come? The issue is very plain. Which side are you on?
ONLY TWO DEATHS The death of the righteous and the death of the wicked. “Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord” (Rev. 14:13). “As I live, saith the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked” (Ez. 33:11). The brightest spot in this world is the deathbed of a triumphant Christian; the saddest sight is that of a sinner passing into the gloom of an eternal night without the shelter of the precious blood. If the Lord does not come, one of these two deaths will be yours. Which would it be, if you were to die this moment?
ONLY TWO PLACES Heaven and hell—in eternity. To which are you traveling? Time carries you swiftly on. Once you cross Time’s boundary, “the great gulf fixed” is set up for ever, and then mistakes are irrevocable and indifference fatal. Heaven will be the home of the ransomed of the Lord, of those who have trusted Christ and received Him as their Savior. This alone is their title. Alas! The unbeliever seals his own doom. “The wicked shall be turned into hell and all the nations that forget God” (Ps. 9:17).
