ENTER THROUGH THE NARROW GATE. FOR WIDE IS
THE GATE AND BROAD IS THE ROAD THAT LEADS TO
DESTRUCTION, AND MANY ENTER THROUGH IT. BUT
SMALL IS THE GATE AND NARROW THE ROAD THAT
LEADS TO LIFE, AND ONLY A FEW FIND IT.
( MATTHEW 7:13 *NIV )
The gate that leads to Eternal Life is narrow indeed.
However that doesn't mean that being a Christian is difficult,
but it does mean that there is only one way to Eternal Life,
and believing in Jesus Christ is that way!
Jesus is quoted in the Book of John as saying;
"I AM THE GATE; WHOEVER ENTERS THROUGH ME
WILL BE SAVED. HE WILL COME IN AND GO OUT
AND FIND PASTURE." ( JOHN 10:9 )
Our Savior also said; "STRIVE TO ENTER THROUGH
THE NARROW GATE, FOR MANY, I SAY TO YOU, WILL
SEEK TO ENTER AND WILL NOT BE ABLE."
( LUKE 13:24 )
Now needless to say, in addition to believing in Jesus
Christ, we must obey God's Commandments, and do our
best to live a righteous life as well! For then we will, by the
Grace of God, make our way through that narrow gate.
Now when you think about it Charles, isn't it
wonderful to know that this life isn't all there is, and that
we may look forward to meeting our Beloved Savoir
Jesus Christ at that gate someday! Further that we will
DWELL IN THE HOUSE OF THE LORD FOREVER!
( PSALM 23:6 )
So; PRAISE THE LORD, AND FORGET NOT ALL HIS
BENEFITS--WHO FORGIVES ALL OUR SINS AND
HEALS ALL OUR DISEASES, WHO REDEEMS OUR
LIVES FROM THE PIT AND CROWNS US WITH LOVE
AND COMPASSION. Amen.
( PSALM 103:2-4 )
With My Love & Prayers,
your servant Allen
