We too can enjoy in the new life that Jesus’ Resurrection promises, but there are conditions, we need to stay along the path that is straight and narrow. “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. (Matthew 7 13-15)
A narrow gate is harder to pass through than one that is wide, and only a few people can go through a narrow gate at once. In saying “difficult is the way which leads to eternal life,” Jesus was explaining how hard being a Christian really is.
HOWEVER, it also means that you don’t follow trends and fads and be of the world because the world is broken and can lead to destruction.
GOD NEVER CHANGES, WHAT WAS, IS, FOREVER WILL BE. God knew what He was doing when He created the world, the message hasn’t changed even though the tides change. God never said it would be easy, but He promised it would be worth it!!! (Matthew 7 13-15)
Dear Lord, Help us to never forget how much You loved the world that You gave us your only Son- Jesus Christ to redeem us. Help us to appreciate the selfless sacrifice Jesus made so that we may have new life. Please make us strong so that we can keep on the narrow path and our names to be written in the book of life and to share in the glory of heaven. AMEN
