There are many people that believe in Jesus by word only. They haven’t given Him there whole hearts. They aren’t doers of the Word. It’s sad, as Jesus will not know them. They heard His message but never got up to follow Him. The same thing has happened time and time again on earth. Of all the many people in Noah’s time, many disregarded His message of the flood. There were others that listened but when the time came they didn’t follow. There were only few that actually got on the ark and were saved. The same holds true to the Lord’s time on earth. Most people rejected His words. Others sat and listened to the King of Kings but when asked to follow, they couldn’t do it. Only few left everything they had and followed Jesus. To follow the narrow gate was too much of a life change to make. If people could just open their hearts to the things of God many more would be saved.
All those that follow Jesus are saved. However, only few people in all the places of the earth lift up their cross and follow Him. For the hearts of many are closed to the things of God. Others are open to listen but never get their lives in order to let the Lord in. They may even go to church but during the week their hearts are tied to the things of the world. The day I discovered the Lord and followed Him my life was changed forever. I began to pray often and His love came into my life like a fire. I can see the counsels of God in the Bible and love to follow them for they are wise. I can’t wait for the day that I can rest in the Kingdom of God. All of my fears will be over. The Lord will dry all my tears. My pains of this earth will be washed away. Thank You Lord for your great mercy. Thank You for showing me the truth. I dedicate my life to You. You are everything to me. I love You Lord.
22 And He went through the cities and villages, teaching, and journeying toward Jerusalem.
23 Then one said to Him, “Lord, are there few who are saved?” And He said to them,
24 “Strive to enter through the narrow gate, for many, I say to you, will seek to enter and will not be able.
25 When once the Master of the house has risen up and shut the door, and you begin to stand outside and knock at the door, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open for us,’ and He will answer and say to you, ‘I do not know you, where you are from,’
26 then you will begin to say, ‘We ate and drank in Your presence, and You taught in our streets.’
27 But He will say, ‘I tell you I do not know you, where you are from. Depart from Me, all you workers of iniquity.’
