We read in the gospel of Luke 13:24 that somebody asked Jesus whether those who are being saved are few. Jesus replied and said:”MAKE EVERY EFFORT to enter the narrow door because many will try hard and not be able.” Many believers say that they cannot stop sinning, they cannot obey the words of Jesus, they say they cannot be perfect as Jesus commanded. Jesus said:”Be perfect like your Father in heaven is perfect.”
How much EFFORT are we putting into following and obeying Jesus Christ? How hard are we trying? If we do not put every effort into seeking the kingdom of God and His righteousness we will enter! We will not find the narrow door. How much EFFORT are we putting into following and obeying Jesus Christ? Are we putting every bit of energy, EVERY EFFORT into DOING THE WILL OF GOD? Or do we just believe that we will be saved because we believe in Jesus? Then we are living in a fool's paradise.
We have to put EVERY EFFORT into doing the will of God because many will try hard and not be able. How hard are we trying? How much effort are you putting into your relationship with Jesus Christ?
May Jesus bless you.
