““Make every effort to enter through the narrow door, because many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able to.” Luke 13:24 NIV
Many, many, many will try but will fail... says this passage. Therefore we are required to give ultimate effort. We are called to make every effort to enter through the narrow door.
When I was growing up I thought this only applied to heaven/salvation, however I now see we can start living in a mental/spiritual state of heaven here on earth as well. But, but, but it requires EFFORT... not wishing, hoping, or a casual desire.
I seriously need to evaluate myself daily ask ask God where I can improve, where can I tune in more with Him than with myself. My tendency is to isolate, drink my own kool-aid, and bank on the fact I’m not as bad as some other people. That’s simply not going to cut it.
Jesus reminds us to control our attention and make every effort
