Luke 13:24 Strive to enter through the narrow door. For many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able.
Jesus is here responding to a man who has asked if the number of those being saved will be very few. The answer may at first not seem to make much sense. There is no mention here of the broad way, as there is in the Matthean parallel, but Jesus' words do clearly tell us that being saved is clearly a matter of choice, intentionality and effort. No-one gets saved by mistake or accident. It doesn't just happen.
Are you making an effort and ensuring that you enter through that narrow door?
