“Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few. Matthew 7:13‭-‬14 ESV

Narrowness and hardness means very small and not easygoing. Our text reveals the road to true life is both very difficult and hard to follow.

Beloved, the world is full of seeming shortcuts, surefire and easygoing ways to God. These are viral even in the contemporary Church. Although they don’t work, crowds of people fall for them because they’re forcefully attractive, very wide and broad, therefore not rigorous. Unfortunately they lead to and end up in death and destruction. Total attention, commitment, dedication and diligence is required to be able to find, follow and stay on the path of life, because it’s usually very costly, difficult, hard, unattractive, uneasy and vigorous. Do you really want life and to be with God, then you must make the choice to pay the price and endure the pain on the hard and narrow path. There are no two ways!

Grace upon grace!
