Matthew 7:13 Warns That The Gate Is Narrow

Nobody said it was going to be easy, in fact Jesus warned us that it is actually quite hard to do the right things and follow Him.  Today is a good opportunity to look at our own lives and be honest with ourselves whether we think we would fit through that narrow gate.  If the answer is no, what can we do to transform our lives?  None of us no how long we have on Earth, so we should not wait until it is convenient or easy, we must do all that we can, and we should start today!

“Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the road broad that leads to destruction, and those who enter through it are many.  How narrow the gate and constricted the road that leads to eternal life. And those who find it are few.” Matthew 7:13-14

  1. I love the rest of that chapter, especially vs. 24-26, where Christ reminds us the importance of building a strong foundation to our faith. And then Galations 2:8-9 reminds us that it is by GRACE alone that we are saved – nothing we could ever do could be enough to save us from our sins. It’s Christ alone that can do that for us.
