Lecture 2, The Wicket Gate:
When a person becomes aware of his or her sinfulness and need for a savior, he or she may experience a sudden and dramatic spiritual rebirth. Many Christians today and throughout church history have attested to their lives being instantly transformed through an encounter with Jesus Christ. For others, conversion can be a lengthy process, through which Christ gradually draws a sinner to Himself. Such was John Bunyan’s experience, and such is the experience of Christian in Pilgrim’s Progress. In this message, we will witness firsthand the dangers and challenges that Christian faces as he treads the path from conviction of sin toward the Savior’s arms.
