Devotions for August 7, 2017

MATTHEW 7:13

The Narrow Gate
13 “You can enter God’s Kingdom only through the narrow gate. The highway to hell[a] is broad, and its gate is wide for the many who choose that way. 14 But the gateway to life is very narrow and the road is difficult, and only a few ever find it

ENTER BY THE GATE

Jesus is identifying Himself as the gate to enter in order to get right with God. People will try out all sorts of things to fix their brokenness in their own power (philosophy, good deeds, exercise, meditation, etc), but Jesus says that He alone is the way to redemption.

PERSONAL REFLECTION

Q: According to Jesus, where does the broad road of living like everyone else in the world lead?
Q: Have you received Jesus free gift of grace and forgiveness so that you enter the gateway to life?
Q: Who in your life needs to hear of the hope found in entering the Kingdom of God through Jesus’ finished work?
