“The Narrow and Wide Gates”
“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”
There is a tendency among Americans to think that the vast majority of people go to Heaven. Sadly, this is not true. Jesus told us in the above verses that only a few find the way to Heaven. And while we want to tell everyone we love that they are going to Heaven, no matter what choices they make in this life, if we truly love them, we will tell them the Truth-their choices matter!
God sent Jesus to Save us, but we have to choose whether or not we want to be Saved. In other words, we need to choose to accept Jesus as our Savior. For a Gift, no matter how wonderful, is not received unless it is accepted!
So many will say, “I accepted Jesus so I can do anything I want”. This is not true. For if we truly believe in Jesus, if we truly accept Jesus as our Savior, than we will Follow Him. And to Follow Jesus means to Follow the teachings of the God’s Word! And we don’t get to change those Teachings!
“For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.” – Revelation 22:18-19
If we wish to go to Heaven, we need to accept Jesus as our Savior and Follow God’s Word as it is, not as we sometimes wish it were…
Call on Jesus today and Follow Him to Heaven 🙂
Prepare, Pray & Be Ready!
