Daily Bible Reading: Luke 13:22 – 35
Verse of the Day: Luke 13:23 – 24 – “And one said unto him, Lord, are they few that are saved? And he said unto them, Strive to enter in by the narrow door: for many, I say unto you, shall seek to enter in, and shall not be able.”
Jesus is very straightforward in responding to questions from serious seekers. In this case, Luke records a question from a person after Jesus had been teaching about how many would be saved.
The response basically states that we must be saved on God’s terms, not our own. Many will miss salvation because they seek to achieve it on their terms, their own way.
Yes, Christianity is narrow-minded, because the only way that Jesus states that one can be saved and enter into the presence of God through Him. Any other way we chose will result in our failure to enter into God’s presence.
Prayer: Father, today I seek to be sure that my only hope and way into God’s Presence is through You and You alone. Nothing to the cross I bring, Just to You I cling. Amen.
