Eternal Perspective

Re:Verse passage – Matthew 7:13-14 (day five) “For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.”
There’s not much of a sales pitch in our text this week. Jesus doesn’t make the Christian life seem desirable at all- narrow, hard, few.  From  a human perspective, not a good marketing or advertising campaign. I’m always curious how much the commercials cost for “the big game”. This Sunday evening, advertisers will pay around seven million dollars for thirty seconds to make their products seem fun, adventurous, and widely known and used. What you won’t  hear too much this Sunday afternoon, is the “long game”. Jesus always has this in mind. In other words, the economy of the Kingdom of God is best understood and appreciated from an eternal perspective. Patience. Discipline. Courage. Endurance. That’s why He says through the small gate and on the narrow path there is life, and through the wide gate and broad path is destruction.
