Re: Verse reading–Matthew 7:1-27 (day one)
“Small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and ONLY A FEW find it.”–v 14.
Jesus was no fan of the human race, not in a generalized “I’m OK, you’re OK” sort of way. He loved us but also saw the fatal flaw that operates in our hearts. Most people are, as a rule, “blind guides”.
In John 3, Jesus said, “he who does not believe is CONDEMNED ALREADY” Not a judgement that will SOMEDAY be declared, a judgement that (apart from conversion) is ALREADY true.
Some people say that eventually everyone will be saved. Not Jesus. The gate is small that leads to life. ONLY A FEW find it.
We read this week the words of Christ that tell us not to judge. Whatever else it means, it does NOT mean that all truth is equally true or that the “majority is always right”
where God is concerned.
