Jesus did not suggest we enter at the narrow gate, this is a command to all who hear him (Matt 7:13a). We have a decision to make. Will we enter, will we obey, will we become Jesus' apprentices and be with Him? You cannot drift into a relationship with Jesus. Discipleship, obedience to Jesus Christ, walking the narrow way does not just happen. Simply calling yourself a Christian (putting on a label), attending church, reading a bible, saying prayers or trying to be a good person doesn't make one a fully devoted follower of Jesus Christ. You must intentionally decide to make Jesus your teacher and the director of your life, seeking every day to hear and obey his commands.
>>> You either are a disciple of Jesus or you are not. You are either on the narrow road or the wide road. You are either with Jesus or without him.
I can plod. I can persevere in any definite pursuit. To this I owe everything.
