Enter Through The Narrow Gate
Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the way that leads to life, and only a few find it. (Matthew 7:13-14)
The Bible teaches that there is one way that leads to Heaven, and that is through following Jesus. In contrast, the world presents us with numerous options.
However, following Jesus is not without its challenges, as it may lead to persecution from those who oppose this path.
Also, many people are reluctant to choose this route because Jesus teaches that they cannot simply do as they please. This is why the Bible refers to it as the narrow gate.
Yet, entering through this narrow gate offers the benefits of an abundant life and the eternal presence of God in Heaven. ~ Jeff M Newman
