Sunday Reflection: Enter through the Narrow Door (12 Jul 2020)

While traveling from Galilee to Jerusalem, Jesus preached in the towns and villages. Someone asked whether God would save only a few. Jesus answered that the door to the Kingdom of God is narrow and hard to enter. Many will try to go in but will not be sturdy enough. Only those who “strive” will enter. When some disciples who worked for the Kingdom of God fail, they would complain on their rejection. Their dissatisfaction would be high when they notice that Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, the prophets, and even the Gentiles remain inside the Kingdom while God would cast them out. A passive discipleship is not enough. We have to strive with dedication and commitment to inherit the Kingdom.
