Narrow is the Way

August 8, 2017

Matthew 7:13-14Enter through the narrow(straight) gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But the gate is small(straight) and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.

Narrow is the way
Hard pressed on every side  
2Cor 4:8
Tho darkness closes in
Do not be afraid
Even in the darkest valley
Jesus stays close beside –
Ps 23:4
He is the One and Only 
The way, the truth, the life –
Jn 14:6
The straight gate –Jn 10:7
Opening to the tree of life. Rev 2:7

From NetBible Mt 7:14 & 2Cor 4:8

Matthew 7:13-14Enter through the narrow(straight)t[4728] gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But the gate is small(straight)[4728] and the way is narrow[2346] that leads to life, and there are few who find it.

  • straight[4728] = narrow, small
  • narrow/hard pressed[2346] = to press (as grapes), to experience trouble, affliction, distress

.
2Corinthians 4:8, 16-17We are hard pressed[2346] on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair …
… 16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. 17 For our present troubles are quite small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us an immeasurably great glory that will last forever!
