Narrow Or Wide Gate?

Some may believe that they can be saved in heaven just by being a good person. They may think that doing good things on earth will do them well in the next life. All of this can be justified in one’s heart but it is untrue. Only through our belief in Jesus Christ will we be saved. There is no other Name that we can put our trust in that will save us. If our hearts are not given to our Lord Jesus than we will be going to hell. The path to hell is wide and the majority of people follow it. These are those whose hearts are in the world. They believe in other gods or none at all. Some of them may say they believe in Jesus but don’t follow in His ways. There is only pain and sorrow in this place. The path to heaven is narrow and God’s elect are on it. These are those that believe in Jesus Christ. They trust in Him. They love reading the Bible for it is a light to their lives. Praying to God is an amazing time to worship the Lord. They carry God’s love in their hearts and are kind towards others. Their desire is to do the will of our Eternal Father in heaven. There is love, joy, peace and eternal happiness here. What type of life are you leading? If it isn’t God’s path, repent and believe in Jesus. Your salvation in God’s kingdom is on the line.

It is only those that know the Lord that will be saved. All those that proclaim Him but are sinners in their hearts will never know Him. Our sins will keep us out of heaven if we don’t accept Jesus’s sacrifice on the cross. Jesus bled and died for each of us but it is up to us to accept Him and believe. We must let the Holy Spirit take hold of our lives. To know how to live for Jesus we must read the Bible. It will point us on the path of righteousness. It is God’s word and will be a lamp to our feet. The more that we think of Jesus the more often we will pray. Prayer will bring us closer to God. I know that Jesus lives. What the world offers is nothing compared to the love of Jesus. He has the power to heal our hearts. He has can give life and take away life. The life He gives is life abundant. There is so much joy in the Lord. Oh Lord, I pray that many more souls will be saved. I pray that the hearts of many will we opened to hear of your message of hope. I was so lost before I found You. I was going down the wide road and would be part of hell if you didn’t save me. You opened my eyes and led me to the truth. I am grateful that I opened my heart to You for I have never been so happy. You are the light of my life. You have brought me great joy. I love You Jesus.

Matthew 7:13,14,21-23 (KJV)
13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
