Enemies in the Way

Journey to the Celestial City #4. In our continuing look at John Bunyan's "Pilgrim's Progress," today we find the man, Graceless, heading towards the Wicket Gate while various people seek to hinder him. Among these are his wife and little ones, his neighbors and then two gentlemen in particular by the names of Obstinate and Pliable. And when a person sets out to lay hold of the eternal life that God affords, there are many who would put a stop to it. Has anyone, maybe even a close relative, ever made fun of, dismissed or mocked your pursuit of Christ in an effort to turn you back? "'[A]nd a man's enemies will be the members of his household.'" (Matthew 10:36) More to come in the next blog post. Check back soon. (To read this entire blog post series, scroll down to "Pilgrim's Progress Series" in the left sidebar.) pp 3-4
