The life to which he invited his hearers was the life in the Spirit that he himself had experienced. The narrow way, the road less traveled, is life centered in the Spirit of God.
Since God Himself has created us in such a way that we must hear the word of God if we are to be ourselves, he has also endowed us with the ability to hear it.

Truth then as a manifestation of Jesus, is a manifestation of love. Just as there are not alternative truths, there are not alternative loves, for God is one.

Theophan the Recluse
First there is the fall, and then we recover from the fall—and both are the mercy of God!
Julian of Norwich
