Enter through the narrow gate.
The Narrow Door
…23“Lord,” someone asked Him, “will only a few people be saved?” Jesus answered, 24“Make every effort to enter through the narrow door. For many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able. 25After the master of the house gets up and shuts the door, you will stand outside knocking and saying, ‘Lord, open the door for us.’ But he will reply, ‘I do not know where you are from.’…
Something to ponder; only 8 souls were saved on the ark, only 3 souls from Sodom and Gomorrah and only Joshua and Caleb entered the promised land. The question that should you ask yourself is.
Would you have been on the boat, survived Sodom and Gomorrah, or entered the promised land? Matthew 7:13-14 Enter through the narrow gate.
For wide is the gate 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. Luke 13:23-25 Someone asked him, “Lord, are only a few people are going to be saved?” He said to them. Strive to enter through the narrow door. For many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able. When once the master of the house has risen and shut the door, and you begin to stand outside and to knock at the door, saying, ‘Lord, open to us,’ then he will answer you, ‘I do not know where you come from. Luke 13:25 "No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws them, and I will raise them up at the last day. John 6:44 …Yeshua answered, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. John 14:6
Blessings or curses "I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So, choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants, Deuteronomy 30:19 The blessing, if you listen and do the
commandments of the LORD your God, which I am commanding you today; Deuteronomy 11:17
What does the Father require from us?
Jesus said to his disciples: If you love me, you will do as I command. John 14:15
That's the whole story. Here now is my final conclusion: Fear God and obey his command. Ecclesiastes 12:13 The Lord isn’t really being slow about his promise, as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed but wants everyone to repent. 2 Peter 3:9 Matthew 7:21-23 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Yeshua replied, “I tell you the truth unless you are born again, you cannot see the Kingdom of God.” John 3:3 “Why ask me about what is good?” Yeshua replied. “There is only One who is good. But to answer your question—if you want to receive eternal life, keep the commandments.” Matthew 19:176. And he said: 'I tell you the truth unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 18:3 For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven. Mat 5:20 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 5:10
