TEXT: MATTHEW 7: 13-14
(13) Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
(14) Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
KEY VERSE: JOHN 3:16
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Here is an excerpt from the book Escaping Hell Fire and Entering Heaven Made Simple by Pastor Paul Rika:
Jesus said “My son, come.” We swiftly appeared at the gate. As He stretched out His right hand, I saw the narrow way leading to heaven and He said, “This way can accommodate only you in Christ and Christ in you. If you carry anything else, this way cannot accommodate you. This is the way of truth, Righteousness and Holiness. The other way is the way of multitudes. This is the only way to heaven. It is a narrow way and only few find it.
Matthew 7:13-14 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
At that gate, we stood for a long time before I saw a saint on earth coming along that way to heaven. It took another long time before I saw another person coming along that way to heaven. When the saint from the earth entered into heaven I heard a shout of acclamation and joy! A soul had entered into heaven! There are normally shouts of joy when a soul enters into heaven. Speaking more of this narrow way, Jesus continued. “This narrow way is the way of truth, righteousness and holiness. If any man desires to enter into heaven I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. Go and tell man I still love him.'
As we can see in today's account, there is a holy standard for making it to heaven. Pray not to fall short of God's righteousness in your daily walk with Christ. Many are ignorant of this truth. Tell it to sinners, backsliders, believers, ministers and churches.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Narrow way is way of truth, righteousness and holiness.
SONG FOR THE DAY: I have chosen the way (2x) I have chosen the right way….
BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY: Zechariah 1-3; Revelation 17
