Jesus said: “I am the gate. Whoever enters through me will be saved, and will come in and go out and find pasture.” (cf. Jn 10:9)
Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the road broad that leads to destruction, and those who enter through it are many. How narrow the gate and constricted the road that leads to life. And those who find it are few. (Matthew 7:13-14)
As we go through life we have so many choices. That is one of the many gifts from God. It is a blessing and a curse. We have to choose and we need to choose well. Our earthly journey is at stake – our happiness and peace here on earth. But so much more is at stake – our eternal souls. How hard it is at times to resist temptation. It’s so easy to do as others do. To follow the herd, jump on the bandwagon. But if we ask God for strength, we can swin against the current, and squeeze through the narrow gate. Close your eyes and think of God and listen for His voice calling you, guiding you. Follow His words, make your way to the narrow gate, and pass through.
