luke 13 22 24
Luke 13:22-24

22 Then Jesus went through the towns and villages, teaching as he made his way to Jerusalem. 23 Someone asked him, "Lord, are only a few people going to be saved?" He said to them, 24 "Make every effort to enter through the narrow door, because many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able to. “

where does the question come from
Where does the question come from?
  • Unidentified man
  • Calls Jesus “lord”
  • Insiders and outsiders – Jews and gentiles
    • Insiders have special track
are only a few going to be saved
Are only a few going to be saved?
  • What would it change if only a few would be saved?
    • About God’s Character?
    • About the extent of his love?
    • Reality Check – we don’t know the number!
  • JESUS doesn’t say!
  • Instead he points to them and reminds them of their responsibility
strive vs seek
Strive vs. seek

strive = fight, (or) do one’s best, compete (as in an athletic contest).

  • Make every effort
  • So… we’re not already counted in?

Seek – or desire, wish, want

luke 13 25 30
Luke 13:25-30

25 Once the owner of the house gets up and closes the door, you will stand outside knocking and pleading, 'Sir, open the door for us.' "But he will answer, 'I don't know you or where you come from.' 26 "Then you will say, 'We ate and drank with you, and you taught in our streets.' 27"But he will reply, 'I don't know you or where you come from. Away from me, all you evildoers!' 28 "There will be weeping there, and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, but you yourselves thrown out. 29 People will come from east and west and north and south, and will take their places at the feast in the kingdom of God. 30 Indeed there are those who are last who will be first, and first who will be last."

narrow way
Narrow way

Narrow Way

  • Small is the gate
    • The humble door at the church of the nativity
    • The sermon on the mount isn’t for everyone
  • Narrow is the way – ESV “the way is hard that leads to life,”
    • Why isn’t everyone Christian? – it’s not easy
  • Few find it.

Matthew 7:13-14

“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

if you enter the narrow gate
If you enter the narrow gate
  • You must enter individually
    • It can’t be by your grandma’s faith
    • It can’t be for your girlfriends sake
    • Not because you go to church every Sunday
    • Not because you go to a Christian School
    • Not because you went to camp, Awana, VBS
    • Not because you call yourself a Christian
  • It must be your individual response
enter through the narrow gate
Enter through the narrow gate
  • Not a command,
  • An invitation!
