"Enter ye in at the strait gate; for wide is the gate, and broad the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be that go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it." Matthew7: 13,14.
If we are saved, and if we know that we are saved and on our way to heaven, stop and think of just how fortunate and blessed we are. Of all the multitudes of people in the world, we are among the few who are saved and have heaven and the paradise of God to which we can look forward. Most people who have been born into this world, and there are multitudes, both dead and living, who have walked the broad highway of death and eternal destruction, and will spend eternity in hell, having neglected, and rejected God's offer of forgiveness and salvation. How precious we ought to esteem the grace of God that has been extended to us through the Lord Jesus Christ! How we ought to treasure this great inheritance we have in Christ! Relatively few people have received it, although God is not willing that any should perish, and his grace is extended to all who will hear and respond to his call. Blessed are all those whom God has caused to be born into the family of God, and entered the narrow gate that leads to eternal life. How great is our God, and how great and how precious is our salvation!
