"Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able." Luke
IN JESUS TODAY!
This is a good question, "are there few that be saved?" While we do not know exactly who will be saved and who will not, we can have some idea of what the requirements are. Strive to enter in at the strait gate is our clue. Exactly what is the strait gate? There are three things that we find when we search this out. First, at the strait gate there is no judgment. Mathew 7:3 reads, "And why beholdest the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is thine own eye?" So Judgment is gone as you enter in at the strait gate. Second, at the strait gate there is love, John 13:34 reads, "A new commandment I give unto you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another." So as we are walking through the strait gate we help each other through. Finally, at the strait gate there is faith in Jesus, Hebrews 11:6 reads, "But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him."
THE STRAIT GATE AND NARROW PATH IS THESE THREE: NO JUDGMENT, LOVE ONE ANOTHER, AND HAVE FAITH IN GOD!
God leads us to Strive to enter in without judgment, full of love, and full of faith in God! His gate is strait and narrow, but this is how we must approach the entrance if we expect to get in.
Jesus ascended from the grave and is alive! He lives! Forever he lives to show us the way to live with him. So that we may live for eternity in heaven with Him let us Go to the cross today and receive eternal life then strive to enter in!
JESUS IS ALIVE AND IS LEADING THE WAY!
