This image comes by way of a title from a tune by Thelonious Monk . As I was listening to the piece I noticed how the bass line stayed central to the melody. I began to visualize a straight alcoholic drink with nothing to chase it with. When we allow Jesus Christ to live in our hearts we do not need anything else As the result it is straight with no chaser.
Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.
But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
