The Way of the Kingdom (Part 11) - Two Gates

As Jesus wraps up the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 7:13-14, he says to “enter through the narrow gate, for wide 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.” Jesus isn't talking about a physical city gate, but rather the path to Heaven... And he means that we aren't all simply going to end up in Heaven by believing whatever we want in life or trying to earn our way in. While some might say this view on salvation is “narrow minded,” in this case, “narrow” is exactly what we're looking for. It is trust in God's grace alone through Jesus' sacrifice that leads us to eternal life, not trust in our own good works. Repent and be saved, and just like anyone else, you too can enter through Heaven's narrow gate.
