The world has WIDE open gates. Instinctively we stream full speed toward all that our heart desires. That’s the way of the world, wide open gates and broad roads. Whatever trouble you desire can easily be found. The herd moves down the road of vanity and selfishness, leading to brokenness and destruction. Thankfully, there is another way! The Bible instructs us to walk through the NARROW gate.
This is the way of humility and repentance before God and man. There is no way that we could get right with God based on our track record. We’ve been on the wrong road since birth. Christ, through His sacrifice on the cross, opened up the narrow way for all men. The wide gate offers fleeting pleasure, but only the narrow gate leads to LIFE!
“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction…” Mt 7:13
