Matthew 7:13 – Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it.
Jesus commands believers to “enter by the narrow gate” and this is exactly where you should be seeking to enter. If I asked you to narrow your walk what would you have to purge from your path to accomplish that task?
Is narrow difficult for you? Do you sometimes lose your way at following Christ? Are you putting your hand to the gate of destruction or the gate of life? Are there obstacles in your path that are strategically placed by your hand alone? This week your challenge is to do a “path assessment”. What are the things, the thoughts and the behaviors that you know ensnare your walk with the Lord? What causes you to walk in the flesh and not in the Spirit? Make this the week that you close the wide gate that is waiting with destruction and open the narrow gate that leads to all of His spiritual blessings.
