The Narrow Door

by Pastor Lincoln Albrecht

We live in a world that seems to offer many—almost limitless—choices in a person’s pursuit of happiness. Some of the most successful encourage their would-be disciples to find out what makes them happy and go and do that. So where do so many find meaning and satisfaction? Pursuing your dreams, achieving professional success, developing the right connections, or surrounding yourself with the right people all seem quite appealing doors to personal happiness. These doors seem to unlock the good life, but God’s Word tells us that when we choose these doors over Christ, they will only lead to destruction. By God’s grace, we have been lead to see that Christ is the small gate that leads to eternal life. But this path is not without difficulties. However, in Christ, we find the confidence and strength to follow his pattern.
