“…because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.” Matthew 7:14
THE WAY IS SET. THE GATE IS OPEN. COME ON IN!
It has been said that
“Narrow is the gate, difficult is the way that leads to life. Few find it,” said Jesus (Matthew 7:14)
Let’s get real.
There has never been a tougher time to be alive. And believing in Jesus Christ in these times? Talk about living on the edge! Talk about taking the road less travelled. Talk about defying the mainstream and daring to be different, or even, alone.
Let’s face it.
Many of us feel like the rich young ruler in Luke 18:18-27. The guy really wanted to follow Jesus. But boy, when he heard what the “cut-off” requirements were, he was like, “Gosh…I want to…I really want to…but I just can’t. It’s too hard.”
Because he didn’t stick around to hear Jesus finish His thought.
“Who then can be saved?” the disciples asked.
Jesus answered. “With man it is impossible. But with God, all things are possible.”
Yes, the gate to ‘that God life’ can feel narrow. And yes, the way to ‘that God life’ can feel difficult…if it were up to you to plot your path, and muscle your way through.
But it’s not. IT’S NOT.
It’s up to God.
And with God, all things are possible. HE HAS MADE IT POSSIBLE.
Not only that. He has put loud, creative and captivating signposts all along the way to that gate. He has packed the sidewalks with crowds of giants who have gone before you, and who are now there for one reason only, to cheer you on, and get you through that gate!
Not only that. He HIMSELF stands strong beside you. The Warrior King. Fierce as a lion. Gentle as a lamb. He offers to carry you, daily, down that way, past every obstacle, and to that gate that leads to ‘the God life’.
You just have to say “Yes”, and keep saying “Yes”.
That’s where we come in.
Fill your spaces. Tune out the Static. Turn on the truth. Be intentional about it. Gotta get that God life! Gotta get that God life!
The Narrow Gateway programs are free and easily accessible to you on our various platforms. Plus, we are always thinking of new programs to support your passionate pursuit of truth in ‘the God life’.
We look forward to seeing you make your mark on the road less travelled.
Say yes…and keep saying yes, to ‘the God life’.

TOYIN OLADIRAN, FOUNDER OF THE NARROW GATEWAYThe Narrow Gateway was founded by Toyin Oladiran.Toyin is a Christian Transformational Coach and Counsellor, a Mentor and a Writer.
As a Christian Transformational Coach, Toyin coaches & equips individuals and groups of people to “B.O.O.M” (BOW OUT THE OLD MAN), that is to identify and “bow out” ensnaring and defining mind-sets and behavioural patterns that ensnare them in traps of sin, lukewarmness and brokenness, and that block them from real and transformational intimacy with God, and from discovering and walking in their God-given purpose and calling.
Toyin also works with people to help them discover and step into their God-given purpose and calling.
As the Founder and Co-ordinator of The Narrow Gateway, Toyin mixes her quirky and witty personality, with her love for creative writing, counselling, sharing and teaching the Word of God, to create online content that supports people like you, who are on that bold journey to discover and live in what she likes to call, ‘that God life’.
Toyin is passionate about truth; God’s truth, and she is committed to helping you pursue the truth relentlessly, and live by it. She believes that when Christ said that “the truth shall make you free,” He meant that the knowledge and embrace of God’s truth as your truth and reality, shall make you free. Because when you know the truth, and when it becomes your reality, then you can stand in the fullness and power of who you are, and who your God is. This is how we overcome in the world.
Toyin’s flagship coaching and mentoring program is called The B.O.O.M Walk Program. “B.O.O.M” stands for “Bow Out Old Man” and through this Program, Toyin helps people to take a real look at themselves, identify the traits of the “Old Man” that they are being driven by, and ‘bow’ them out.
With this 8-session online program, Toyin takes you through practical, relatable and clarity-provoking video teachings, exercises and tools that are Bible based, and aimed at helping you see who you really are, and who God made you to be. The Program ends up by helping you chart your way into a life of living in God’s purpose and calling on your life.
Her Quote: “Jesus Christ found me, and put a pen in my hand, many words in my mouth, and a heart for people who are trapped in sin and brokenness, and unable to break out into “that God life” that is free and available to all who believe in Jesus Christ. I think of myself as convicted by my own words and very much still under construction in the hands of the Father.”
Toyin is married to Fiyin, and she is Mama to two adorable kids who she loves to call her Sunshinebabies. She lives in Lagos, Nigeria, with her family.Toyin is a commercial lawyer by profession. Prior to God activating her to begin her work as a Christian Transformational Coach, Toyin worked as a commercial lawyer in legal practice, banking and later pharmaceuticals.“When because of your faith, your life too becomes perceptibly different; when your reactions are quite opposite to what the situation seems to call for and your activities can no longer be explained in terms of your personality; that is when your neighbourhood will sit up and take notice. In the eyes of the world, it is not our relationship with Jesus Christ that counts; it is our resemblance to Him.” – Excerpt from The Queen and I
