Our verse of the day is about seeking the narrow gate. Look, millions of people today are searching for an answer to many problems, both in their life and in the lives of others. As Christians, we must be careful not to put all our eggs in the wrong basket.
Let’s look at what Jesus said about gates.
“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.”
The above is the first of four warnings given by Jesus as a caution to the lost about where they are headed. Take heed as a believer in Jesus Christ. We must be careful about which road we choose. We must be careful who we follow.
The difference between narrow and wide? Let’s take a look.
- hard to find
- The narrow way that leads to life is found only by faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
- easy to find
- leads to destruction, which means “a loss that produces utter ruin, perishing,”
- In our example above, it refers to the loss of eternal life.
I am reminded of the old saying that goes something like this: “Just because everyone else is doing it doesn’t mean it’s the right thing to do.”
As I write this, I am watching people go from one social platform to another because of censorship. I get that, and I understand why. However, remember – we are to follow one with our whole heart – Jesus Christ and him alone. He is our only hope in this chaotic and unstable world.
The question is – Are you looking for the narrow gate that leads to eternal life?
