The Narrow Gate
The Narrow Gate: only God could build a bridge from mankind to Himself. All of man’s efforts at construction failed as miserably as the Tower of Babel. Unfortunately, most will not enter through the the narrow gate—through Jesus. Even those who should know better too often stumble over the Cornersone because the wisdom of God is foolishness to them.
Yet, for those of us who enter through Jesus into the Kingdom, we did so only by the grace of the Almighty. We only begin at the Gate. We learn to walk afterward. None of us can boast that we made it through our own effort, only by faith.
Prayer, Father thank You for the grace You have given me, thank You for Son and my salvation.
