Love is Exclusive: Enter the Narrow Gate

Aug 6, 2023    Patrick Brown

This week we're looking at Matthew 7:12-14 in the bible.

Jesus offers the “Golden Rule” as the summary of the Law and the Prophets. The essence of this rule is love, which cannot be perfectly fulfilled without God radically changing our hearts. Truly loving others begins with loving God, and love is, by nature, exclusive. It is no wonder then that Jesus speaks of a narrow way which leads to life, while all other ways lead to destruction. We must rest in God’s grace by entering this narrow gate, which is Jesus Himself.
