Which Way to Heaven? Podcast by Pastor John MacArthur for Grace to You
Open your Bible with me and look together at Matthew, chapter 7, verses 13 and 14 – Matthew, chapter 7, verses 13 and 14. Those two verses form the text for the message from the Word of God which we’ll be looking at this morning hour. In chapter 7 of Matthew, the Sermon on the Mount, which began in chapter 5, comes to a great crescendo, a great climax. That climax is stated in these two verses. The remainder of the sermon to the end of thechapter simply is an expansion of these two verses. Listen as I read them. “Enter in at the narrow gate; for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be who go in that way. Because narrow is the gate, and hard is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”
Matthew 7 NASB95
13 “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.
