Day 63: Spiritual Food in Quarantine
The Narrow and Wide Gates
“Enter through the narrow gate, for wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many go through it; but small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” Don't get Jesus wrong. He wasn’t projecting future statistics to show many would be eternally damned and few saved. He was stating the fact that at that point, many had not yet found the way to life that He was talking about in that same Sermon on the Mount - enemy-love, mercy, meekness, peace-making, contentment, etc. That’s why He came, to show us that way so that the destructive trend would shift. And it did because of Him. He’s history’s game changer. He caused a hundred men and women to turn the known world upside down and is continuing to do so. The world is never the same again and is headed toward full restoration. There will be no end to the increase of His kingdom of life and peace. So follow His way and enjoy the privilege of being part of that increase. And replace despair with hope.
