Strait Is The Gate…
Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Matthew 7:13-14
Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 1 Corinthians 6:9-10
Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. Galatians 5:19-21
Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Matthew 7:21-23
That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:10-11
It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. Hebrews 10:31
At the gate that leads to glory, from the rugged path of sin,
Where the joys that fill the soul are ever new,
O ye weary, heavy-laden, will you strive to enter in,
While the Saviour now is waiting there for you?
Strait is the gate and narrow is the way
That leadeth unto life above;
Strive to enter in, oh, strive to enter in!
Come to a Saviour’s love.
At the gate that leads to glory there’s a light that shineth still,
‘Tis the pure and holy light of promise true;
Hear the blessed invitation to the whosoever will,
From the Saviour who is waiting now for you.
At the gate that leads to glory you will never knock in vain,
There is room for ev’ry one, and welcome, too;
Only give your heart to Jesus, life eternal you will gain:
He is calling, he is waiting now for you.
From the gate that leads to glory, oh, how many go astray!
We are told that they that find it are but few;
Then believe the words of Jesus, enter quickly while you may:
He is waiting now with open arms for you.
