While sitting in the airport awaiting a flight, I was looking at the people around me thinking how many of them have chosen the gateway that is broad, the highway to hell as Jesus calls it, or how many would choose the gateway to life, the very narrow and difficult road which only a few will ever find? Wow, this is very serious stuff! Jesus said: “You can only enter God’s Kingdom through the narrow gate!” (See Matthew 7:13-14) Going through the narrow gate means that you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross, and follow Jesus Christ! If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for Jesus’ sake, you will save it. (See Matthew 16:24-25) You need to be willing to give up houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or property for God’s sake whenever God asks it of you (See Matthew 19:29), because if you love your father or mother more than you love Jesus Christ, you are not worthy of being His; or if you love your son or daughter more than Jesus Christ, you are not worthy of being His. If you refuse to take up your cross and follow Jesus, you are not worthy of being His. If you cling to your life, you will lose it; but if you give up your life for Jesus Christ, you will find it! (See Matthew 10:37-39) That’s why Jesus said: “Not everyone who calls out to me, ‘Lord! Lord!’ will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Only those who actually do the will of my Father in heaven will enter. On judgment day many will say to me, ‘Lord! Lord! We prophesied in your name and cast out demons in your name and performed many miracles in your name.’ But I will reply, ‘I never knew you. Get away from me, you who break God’s laws.’ Matthew 7:21-23 NLT  Going through the narrow gate which leads to Heaven is living a sacrificial lifestyle in obedience to Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior (See Romans 12:1), who said: “If you love me, obey my commandments!!!” John 14:15 NLT
