The Narrow and Wide Gates
Sermon on the Mount • 14-Nov-2021
This week, well-known author, speaker, and pastor, John Ortberg, continued in our series on the Sermon on the Mount. John explained the meaning of the narrow and wide gate Jesus refers to in Matthew chapter 7. The narrow gate does not represent those who “get in” to heaven, it represents the devotion to being a disciple of Jesus, in humble obedience to him. This obedience leads to freedom to love as Jesus loved, to go beyond tolerance of those who are different than “us”, spiritually, politically, sexually – in any and all ways. Jesus led the way of the narrow gate, and he walks with each one of us as we navigate that same path.
