Few Will Find It
Matthew 7:13-14 (KJB) 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.
Just how does a person know for sure he is journeying along the narrow way in eternal fellowship with God?
Or is lost and meandering upon a wider expressway leading to an eternal existence amid the fires of Hell.
The Bible tells us we can know for sure we are on the right pathway to spending an eternity in fellowship with God in many places including 1st John 5:13 and Acts 4:12.
The context of this verse is about the various gates found around the courtyard of the temple in ancient biblical times. The multiple gates served individual purposes ranging from a place for taking out the trash, to significance for various tribes, and included a distinct narrow entrance leading exclusively inside the temple.
It was important for the people of every city to recognize and understood where each of the individual gates of the city led. Those who desired to dwell inside the temple of God had to enter into the one and the only narrow passageway leading straight to God’s temple.
There was not another entrance way possible to meet with God.
Nothing has changed today. Individuals desiring to commune and fellowship with God must choose the one and only way to Him (John 14:6) being careful not to be fooled by following other enticing pathways available in this world.
