Jesus Commandments

“Choose the Narrow Way”
“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it” (Matthew 7:13–14, KJV)

Several commentaries assert that there is a misconception about what Jesus is telling His followers. I believe most believers understand the road to heaven will be paved with many obstacles, trials, temptations, pitfalls, and traps. Moreover, that God’s grace directs the true disciple’s steps along this narrow path to an even smaller gate. This gate is only assessable through Jesus. Jesus said He was “the Way.” Not, a way, but “the Way.” However, the “broad way” that leads to destruction, many commentators believe is the road paved with “good intentions.” The broad path is clearly marked for deceiving followers into believing it is the way to heaven. You cannot claim Christian discipleship without discipline and self-denial. They are cornerstones from which we make our choices.
