13 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: 14 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
THE STRAIT AND NARROW
The path to Heaven’s like a razors edge,
‘Twill shred your flesh to ribbons on the way.
Too few will walk this fine and narrow ledge,
This sacrifice of self, no room to sway.
Then strait ahead is Jesus; He’s the gate.
There is no other way to get inside.
His blood will cover you, your sins negate
As you walk through the Door to then abide.
But many choose the wide and easy road;
The company is gay and jubilant
But leads to sinful ruin and Hell’s abode
Where all you hear is weeping and lament.
Eternal life is found through Christ alone.
You must go through the gate to reach the throne.

JESUS is The DOOR! John 10:9
Wonderful poem. The difficult path that is worth every difficulty.
Yes! Romans 8:18 – For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
