Matthew 7:13   Go in through the narrow gate. The gate to destruction is wide, and the road that leads there is easy to follow. A lot of people go through that gate. But the gate to life is very narrow. The road that leads there is so hard to follow that only a few people find it.

It is very hard to become a Christian and to walk in the way of God. It goes against all our personal beliefs and desires, and all our thought patterns and processes. To become a Christian, requires a complete change in every part of our person. It means I must lay down my life for JESUS and serve and obey Him. It means living a life of self-denial and giving everything to GOD.

But in return I get everything. God gives me a new life, His Holy Spirit to teach me, and thousands of promises of His love and power.

I must go through the narrow gate… I will be alone, suffer mocking and temptations, but I will have everything, because Jesus is with me.

I loose only my own filthy sins, punishment and eternal suffering, and get an eternal life with the one who loves me best.

If you read the Bible, you will see more about this message…John chapter 3 and chapter 4
