Lk 13:22-30 “LORD, will only a few people be saved?” HE answered them, “Strive to enter through the narrow gate, for many, I tell you, will attempt to enter but will not be strong enough."
STRIVE - ATTEMPT , these are not passive words. These are ACTION words. We must not passively wait, and believe we are going to Heaven. Many will attempt but will not be strong enough.
This should not be a source of worry or concern. JESUS'S words should be a Call to Arms. HE is clearly CALLING US. HE is not allowing us to sit in our misunderstanding. JESUS is clearly leading and teaching. HE desires that we spend eternity with HIM. HE loves us enough to not let us comfortably stroll away from HIM. JESUS does not want our destruction, HE wants our SALVATION. Let's put in the effort. Let's STRIVE. Let's ATTEMPT. MEDITATION ADORATION The SACRAMENTS
STRIVE to enter through the narrow gate! You can see this as too hard, or you can see it as an invitation to walk through the VIP entrance.
St. Joseph, pray for us.
