About Entering the Kingdom Series
Entering the Kingdom is the true Solution to every problem we have. And since Jesus IS the Kingdom, whenever He is present, the Kingdom is at hand!
Speaking of the Kingdom of God, Jesus said:
Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.
Matthew 7:13-14 NASB
We are like Israel. We have been given freely a land – an exceedingly ‘good land.’ We have to journey TO that land, choose that land, and enter the kingdom in which we belong and have citizenship. It can be a long journey or a short journey, that being OUR CHOICE and the measure of our stubbornness.
There are conditions to entering the land. It belongs to us as a home God deeded, and it is our right and privilege. But most of us are not yet IN that land and the reality is that most of us will never enter it. It is still true that ‘there are few who find it.’
