“Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it.For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it. — Matthew 7:13-14
The realization of Jesus’ words here really hit home for me last night at Small Group Bible Study. “How Can I Know” by Robert Jeffress.
The way is broad that leads to destruction. And there are MANY who enter through it. Statistics say there are seven billion people in the world. Of those seven billion 25% are classified as Christians. That means there are literally billions of people headed to Hell. And of those 25% classified to be Christians, how many really are?
God Himself says many are headed to destruction. There are only two destinations for all mankind. Only one narrow path to God and that is through Jesus Christ and Him alone. What gate are you headed to? Your eternal life depends upon it.
“Strive to enter through the narrow door; for many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able. — Luke 13:24
Many believe they are Christians and yet do not know the Lord God at all. Christianity doesn’t just come naturally. It is something we need to seek, strive for. Ask God to give you a yearning for His word, a thirst for Him — to know Him more intimately everyday. The road is narrow and so is the door. Seek while He can be found before the door is forever closed because we are not ready when the Bridegroom returns.
Continually seeking Him,
Please read the rest of Luke 13. Be ready and know Him intimately. It is worth the striving.
