The Narrow Door
The question to Jesus was:”Are there only a few who will be saved?” (Lk 13:23) Realizing that the questioner assumed that he would be one of the saved, Jesus answered: “Strive to enter thru the narrow door.” (Lk 13:24) What did Jesus mean by that?
Maybe the curious man was too self-righteous to fit thru the narrow door. It could be that Jesus hopes the guy will put his self-righteousness on a diet. Then he’ll fit thru that door.
What could stop me from fitting thru the narrow door to eternal life?
Is my ego too big? Am I too full of myself? Is my life too focused on stuff? Am I overly focused on my security? Do I need more than the ‘daily bread’ that I ask for in the Lord’s prayer? Am I too judgmental?
Take 5 minutes to pray. Ask Jesus what kind of diet He recommends for you and me?
