Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

(a). The Broadway Of Sin. Verse 13 ...”BROAD is the way, that LEADETH to DESTRUCTION”

2 Cor. 4:3-4 ..But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: ..... Proverbs 14:12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. It's A Way that Substitutes : - 1. Reason For Revelation "seemeth right' 2. Beauty For Blood Titus 3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Hebrews 9:22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission. 3. Trying For Trusting Eph 2 v 8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast. 4. Feelings For Facts Acts 16 v 30 And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? 31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. 5. Persecution For Persuasion Romans 10:3 For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. 1 Timothy 1:13 Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief. (b). The Blood Bought way Of Salvation. V.14 ...”strait is the gate”... I. WE HAVE A NARROW MINDED GOD A. Exodus 20:3-5 Thou shalt have no other gods before me. 4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:

5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; B. Malachi 3:6 For I am the LORD, I change not… II. WE HAVE A NARROW MINDED SALVATION John 10:1 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. III. WE HAVE A NARROW MINDED SAVIOUR A. John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. 1. NARROW ON THE WAY
