Someone said to Him, “Lord, will those who are saved be few?”
He said to them, “Strive to enter through the narrow gate. For many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able. Once the Master of the house has risen up and shut the door, and you begin to stand outside and knock at the door, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open for us,’ He will answer you, ‘I do not know where you come from.’ Then you will begin to say, ‘We ate and drank in your presence, and you taught in our streets.’ But He will say, ‘I tell you, I do not know you, or where you come from. Depart from Me, all you workers of iniquity.’’ Luke 13:23-27
There are two doors; one is easy to enter, the other is difficult, very difficult to enter, and yet anyone who enters it receives salvation.
This door is the shape and form of our soul, regardless of the physical shape of our bodies. Tall or short, big or small, there’s just one shape to our soul.
But one day this door will be shut. If it’s difficult to enter when open, when shut it will be impossible.
The Most High and Omniscient knows all things! Before we were formed He knew us. (Jeremiah 1:5)
But even so, He does not know doers of iniquity; even though some participate in the Lord’s Supper, they are strangers to His eyes. His servants are those who do the will of His Father.
Can we do the will of God and not feel pain?
To enter the narrow door that leads to salvation, we have to feel pain every day, the pain of surrender, of denying our own wills…
What pain did you feel yesterday, and what pain are you feeling right now?
NEVER FORGET: One day the narrow gate will be shut.
If it’s difficult to enter when open, when shut, and it could shut at any moment, then it will be impossible.
