A Riding Lawnmower

Good morning.

As I sit before this screen, I think I shall be brief — time will tell. 🙂

Matthew 7:13 & 14 Complete Jewish Bible

13 “Go in through the narrow gate; for the gate that leads to destruction is wide and the road broad, and many travel it;
14 but it is a narrow gate and a hard road that leads to life, and only a few find it.  source

What is a gate? 
And can we go through a gate? 

Actually, we don’t, we go through the OPENING the gate provides. 
A gate is a BOUNDRY. It’s a line drawn that we cannot cross UNLESS the gate opens for us.

So. Gate openings.

We have one in our backyard.
And it is a narrow one. 
Someone wants a riding lawnmower. The thing is it can’t be just any riding lawnmower.
The proposed lawnmower cannot exceed a prescribed size. The dimensions must be just so and if not even if the gate is open the lawnmower will not go through. 

The GATE of SALVATION is OPEN for EVERYONE but similar to the lawnmower, the prescribed conditions must be met or there is NO ENTRY allowed. 

GOD has a prescription for LIFE, Life that we can have (enter, if you please) through the NARROW GATE addressed in Matthew 7:13 and 14.

What is GOD’s prescribed gate to LIFE? 
Do you know?
Do you want to know?

Are you willing to look until you find the lawnmower with the right dimensions to fit through the gate

Romans 10.
