READ: LUKE 13:22-30

“The door to heaven is narrow. Try hard to enter it. Many people will want to enter there, but they will not be able to go in. Luke 13:24 ERV http://bible.com/406/luk.13.24.ERV

A narrow door is literally a door that fat, big and wide things or people cannot easily be passed through. It invariably takes a lot of sacrifices and discipline to pass through it. 
Our text describes the door to heaven as a being narrow, which implies, it’s a difficult door that serious handwork is needed to be able to go through it. It says: try hard to enter through the narrow door that opens the way to heaven! Many people will try to enter there, but they will not be able. The hard work in question here is nothing but obedience to the Lord. Obedience is regarded as hard work because human nature is resistant to submission which is the demonstration of obedience. 
Beloved, heaven is a prepared peaceful place,  God’s home, where all no pain, tear, sin or suffering can exist. Figuratively, it’s a state of having every desire and dream met. God has made every provision for your all round peace. However, you can neither experience this peace nor  qualify to literally enter into heaven until you discipline yourself and be obedient to God. Your obedience to God will very often than not lead to difficulty, pain and suffering, which are satanic roadblocks to scare you away; but whoever overcomes, is greatly rewarded by the Lord! 
Grace upon grace!
