People act like only Hitler and the 9/11 hijackers gonna be in hell. Unless we all repent, likewise will we perish.
“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it.Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.” Matthew 7:13-14
That verse about the narrow and broad path is showing us something sooooo very important. The (majority) of people on planet earth will not enter the gates of Heaven, this is something that should concern everyone but most people love to follow the crowd not realizing it’s the majority that are wrong. Only a few will enter in, for narrow is the way and difficult is the way which leads to life and only a few find it . Mainwhile the highway to hell, the path of least resistance, is gonna be longer and more packed than a line at Walmart on black friday.
The wages of sin is death (but) in spite of all of that there is Good News, the gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ. See, we have been giving an amazing opportunity to find the narrow path, the narrow gate and that is through Jesus Christ. It is not God’s will that (any) should perish; but how many people are more concerned with God’s will instead of their own? God doesn’t even rejoice when a wicked person dies, ” Do I take any pleasure in the death of the wicked? declares the Sovereign LORD. Rather, am I not pleased when they turn from their ways and live?” Ezekiel 18:23. God is so loving, He is so merciful and caring, but we reject His gift of eternal life through His Son Jesus Christ.
God not only came in the flesh in Jesus Christ and laid down His life for us bearing all of what we deserved, but He also didn’t leave us orphans but He gave us a helper His Holy Spirit to lead us to all understanding and truth in the knowledge of Jesus Christ. Plus He is our Teacher, plus He’s our Healer, plus He is our refuge, plus He is our provider, plus He is our guide, plus He is our comforter, plus He is our Salvation. There is an old song that asks, “What more do you want Him to do?” He has done it all, all we have to do is believe, repent of our sins, deny ourselves and daily take up our cross and follow Him. Believe that Jesus Christ is Lord.
Let ALL of us examine ourselves, I know I gotta examine myself too. Let’s all straighten up and fly right on through that narrow gate.
