Heaven can be entered only through the narrow gate! The highway to hell [*] is broad, and its gate is wide enough for all the multitudes who choose its easy way. But the Gateway to Life is small, and the road is narrow, and only a few ever find it. (Matthew 7:13-14 TLB)
We must be careful not to misrepresent the Gospel. Many people ignore the truth. Some people make an effort to make the Gospel more acceptable, setting aside God’s truth that make people uncomfortable. We must walk through the narrow gate this leads to eternal life. This ‘Gateway to Life’ is small, and the road is narrow, and only few people ever find it. Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one come to the Father except through Jesus Christ. There are no other paths to God. Being one of God’s sheep leads us in the path of love, righteousness, and truth. This is the only path that leads to heaven, where God has prepared a home for us.
Father, thank You for showing me to be careful not to misrepresent the Gospel. I do not want to ignore the truth. I want to represent You in the truth not make the Gospel more acceptable, setting aside God’s truth that make people uncomfortable. Walking the narrow path is the most important path to follow, through Jesus Christ our precious Lord, leads us to the Father, where He has prepared a home for us. Amen.
