The Narrow Gate.

Matthew 7:13-14. Enter through the narrow gate. For broad is the gate easy the path that leads to destruction and death. 14 But narrow is the gate and difficult the way that leads to life. But few ever find it.

This is a powerful bit of scripture here. That path is everything that is not of God. All those things that we condone by not speaking up and doing hat is right. Not in mans eyes but in Gods. We all fall short, that is never an excuse to share the truth not only with our actions. But with dead’s. Are we willing to help those in need with a joyful spirit. Do you attempt to of correction to those that might not have the hope that is required to make a change by bringing God into the conversation. I don’t mean throwing religion do their throats. But with genuine affection for the people of God. Sharing your time and resources to help educate, encourage and uplift those that might just need a kind word and a hug. There is only one way to make it in and that is the belief in God and all the things he has promised. To those that choose to believe that he truly exists. So choose this day whom you shall server.

  1. Jesus said in John 14:6, I’ am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. Jesus is the only way to heaven. Salvation is not obtained anyway else, not through “being a good person” or our “good deeds.”

    As Believers we must be about our Father’s Business, going therefore and making disciples (Matthew 28:19).

    1. Jesus is the way and the light. However you don’t think that doing good for others. Spreading Gods message. Taking car of the poor. Loving your neighbor. Honoring your father and mother. Have anything to do with taking-care of Gods business?

      1. As Kingdom Citizens (Christians) we are called to proclaim the good news just as the disciples did. As Believers we have a testimony to tell. We should share how God is working in our lives. We share how God saved us and transformed our lives.

        If we know God we should be making Him known by inviting others to church, offer encouragement and ministering to others, letting our light shine (Matthew 5:16), and sharing our faith.

        In order for us to bring others to Christ we have to be willing to meet a need. However, Jesus told His disciples the poor you will have with you always. We should make sure while we are “helping” those in need we are pointing them to Jesus and we don’t replace feeding and helping the poor with evangelism and discipleship. God never told us that our good deeds would get us into heaven while it is a good thing we must always stay focus on what the goal is…leading people to Christ!

        Obedience is an act of Love. Jesus told Peter, if you love me, keep my commandments (John 14:15). God told us we are to love Him with all our heart, soul and strength and love our neighbor as ourselves. The Bible says, I cannot say I love God who I never seen and don’t love the people who I see everyday (1 John 4:20).

        I hope this brings clarity to what I was trying to say?
