Narrow is the Way

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!

    Even though I walk
    Through the valley
    Of the shadow of death
    Your perfect love
    Is casting out fear

    And even when I’m caught
    In the middle
    Of the storms of this life
    I won’t turn back
    I know you are near

    And I will fear no evil
    For my God is with me
    And if my God is with me
    Whom then shall I fear?
    Whom then shall I fear?

    Oh no, You never let go
    Through the calm
    And through the storm
    Oh no, You never let go
    In every high
    And every low
    Oh no, You never let go
    Lord, You never let go of me

    And I can see a light
    That is coming
    For the heart that holds on
    A glorious light beyond all compare
    And there will be an end
    To these troubles
    But until that day comes
    We’ll live to know
    You here on the earth

    Yes, I can see a light
    That is coming
    For the heart that holds on
    And there will be an end
    To these troubles
    But until that day comes
    Still I will praise You
    Still I will praise You
