Luke 13

Today we are reading Luke 13. In this chapter we read about Jesus continuing dialogue with the religious leaders of His time. “He went on his way through towns and villages, teaching and journeying toward Jerusalem. And someone said to him, “Lord, will those who are saved be few?” And he said to them, “Strive to enter through the narrow door. For many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able. When once the master of the house has risen and shut the door, and you begin to stand outside and to knock at the door, saying, ‘Lord, open to us,’ then he will answer you, ‘I do not know where you come from.’ Then you will begin to say, ‘We ate and drank in your presence, and you taught in our streets.’ But he will say, ‘I tell you, I do not know where you come from. Depart from me, all you workers of evil!’ In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God but you yourselves cast out. And people will come from east and west, and from north and south, and recline at table in the kingdom of God. And behold, some are last who will be first, and some are first who will be last.”” Luke‬ ‭13:22-30‬ ‭ESV‬‬ As Jesus is speaking to these crowds, they do not have the perspective we have. They do not know the whole story. We know that entering through the narrow gate means to trust in the one and only Savior, Jesus! With this understanding, why is it hard to “enter through the narrow gate”? How can you stay on track with your faith? May God guide, guard and protect you in your faith! Pastor Tim
