Conclusion. We cannot forget about the King of the Narrow Road and its purpose to lead us to Him. He knows the way, and we have to learn to follow the leading of His Spirit. It may look strange in the natural, but it will teach us the way we are meant to travel the Narrow Road.
Part 9. When the local community hears a prison full of inmates was released, they hide in fear of what might happen to them. The Church has a similar fear of those who claim freedom in Christ. We need to remember that a life of freedom is not lawlessness, but is forever subject to a greater law.
Part 6. What happens when you look at the sun for too long? It blinds you. The pursuit of Purity can have the same effect. We need to let go of to-do lists and learn to live in the promise that we are children of God.

Part 5. Those who live in the lane of Purity have a hard road ahead of them. Maintaining that life is a lot of work. We volunteer for it, accept it, but miss so much more of what Christ promises and gives to us. If we don’t learn how to change lanes, our lives will weaken and suffer.
Part 4. We begin looking at the lane of Purity and find out how it has driven us as Pentecostals so far down the road. Purity is essential to godly living and knowing God, but it has a purpose. We have turned it into something God didn’t intend, and so we misuse and abuse it.
Part 3. Even the smallest difference in opinion can divide deeply, whether in politics or in the Church. We sit like armies, each one camped upon a hill, with the valley of war between us. Though we start down the Narrow Road together in joy, we drift to one of two sides. This week we learn what separated us and what each side has chosen to fight for.
