Matt. 7:14, The Finest Gospel.

Recommended Posts

"Strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leads into life, and few there be that find it."

 

This is part of the Glorious Gospel, the Good News, fresh from the mouth of Christ. Salvation unto life is severely constrained, limited to only a "few," not appointed by predestination or call because the few must "find it." The Text does not say, "Few there be that are predestined."

 

This arrangement is not open for discussion or interpretation. It is entirely specified by Christ. There is no context available to modify the plain statements in verses 13-14. And, Professional Evangelical Church Talkers will at most give only a passing nod to Matt. 7:13-14. They know very well to actually preach what Jesus declared will not fill their sanctuary, and will not bring in much money.

 

Let us lift our hands and delight our hearts for this blessing from God. The Old Covenant of being a chosen people has become the New Covenant for those having the impetus and resources to "find" the Strait and Narrow Salvation through obedience to all of Christ's Commands. "You are my friend if you do what I command."
