[ The Narrow Gate ] “You can enter God’s Kingdom only through the narrow gate. The highway to hell is broad, and its gate is wide for the many who choose that way. But the gateway to life is very narrow and the road is difficult, and only a few ever find it.
[ 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 enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
[ The Narrow Gate ] “Go in through the narrow gate, because the gate to hell is wide and the road that leads to it is easy, and there are many who travel it. But the gate to life is narrow and the way that leads to it is hard, and there are few people who find it.
Great is the Lord! He is most worthy of praise! He is to be feared above all gods. The gods of other nations are mere idols, but the Lord made the heavens! Honor and majesty surround Him; strength and joy fill His dwelling. ~ 1 Chronicles 16:25-27 (NLT)
[ The Narrow Gate ]
“Go in through the narrow gate, because the gate to hell is wide and filled with many temptations, obstacles and tribulations but the road that leads to it is easy, and becomes the road that is traveled regularly and there are many who travel it. But the gate to life is narrow and the way that leads to it is very difficult and there are few people who find it. Many turn away and give up, others just stray off, some fight till they have no more to fight to finish but there are less people that finish in the good and difficult road than that of the easy bad road to hell. God is always trying to point people into his road to salvation and freedom in the kingdom. Looking to give of those who make it eternal life in him.
[ Being and Doing ] “Don’t look for shortcuts to God. The market is flooded with surefire, easygoing formulas for a successful life that can be practiced in your spare time. Don’t fall for that stuff, even though crowds of people do. The way to life—to God!—is vigorous and requires total attention.
Life is difficult and God wants us to try to stay traveling the way of the righteous and Good however it is a difficult and tough usually leading to destruction for a story to live in life so many choose the other road because The other road is easy and a fast tempted way to follow however this road is easy it is filled with wrong temptation and sin filled lifestyle and will on take you to the gates of hell not the gate of heaven and your fully miss out on the gift of eternal life with God.He knows it’s a difficult road but he wants to walk it with you leading you in good and caring and love. Though it is you who has to accept. Meanwhile Satan is a con artist full of obstacle and temptations. He is a leader of trials, temptations of easy evils and martyring. It is best described in Psalm 139 like this
Psalm 139. In a plea to God, the poet exclaims “O that you would kill the wicked, O God, and that the bloodthirsty would depart from me – those who speak of you maliciously, and lift them- selves up against you for evil!
