Few Find Fullness Of Life
MATTHEW 7:14 NKJ 14 "Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.
Many misinterpret this verse, thinking that Jesus was saying few people would go to Heaven. Read it again and you will see that Heaven is never mentioned in this passage.
Jesus was talking about life!
Few people enjoy the fullness of blessing in life that God intends.
JOHN 10:10 NEB 10 'The thief comes only to steal, to kill, to destroy; I have come that men may have life, and may have it in all its fullness.
One of the biggest misunderstandings is thinking that the whole plan of God is just having our sins forgiven so we can go to Heaven. That is an important truth, but it is just the first step. God's plan is much bigger than that. He is raising a family. He is preparing us to be fit companions for eternity.
God gave us His Word, and sent His Spirit to guide us into all Truth, so we could know how to live, both now, and for ever.
ACTS 20:32 NKJ 32 "So now, brethren, I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.
JOHN 8:31-32 NKJ 31 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, "If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. 32 "And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."
SAY THIS: Lord please help me to walk in the way of life as you intended it to be.
