Knife Edge


“….your Quest stands upon the edge of a knife. Stray but a little and you will fail…”  (Galadriel to Frodo in The Fellowship of the Ring)

But the gate is narrow and the way is difficult that leads to life, and there are few who find it.  (Matthew 7.14  NET)

“It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the kingdom of God.” (Mark 10:25 NET)

“[Jesus replied] ‘This is impossible for mere humans,but not for God; all things are possible for God.’”
(Mark 10:27 NET)

How little I fully understand the ‘knife edge’ I walk on. Why should I, as Paul the self acclaimed ‘chief of sinners’ , have a sure hope? How little I fully understand the keeping power of God, making that path way as safe and sure as a highway…Thank God for His power over the impossible.

There is no safer place on earth than this knife edge. No narrow way so sure.
