Strait is the Gate and Narrow the Way
?Strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it? (Mt. 7:14). The RSV renders this verse ?For the gate is narrow and the way is hard.? These are the words of Jesus, and if anyone would desire to know, He is our Savior. He left His home in Glory. He took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men (Phil. 2:5-8). Jesus ?suffered being tempted? (Heb. 2:18). ?For we have not a high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities: but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin? (4:15).
Jesus learned obedience (cf. Heb. 5:8). This may sound strange to some. Jesus the Son of God had to learn obedience? Yes, by virtue of the fact that He took to Himself the liability of flesh and blood (cf. Heb. 2:14), being the Son of man. He is the promised seed of the woman (cf. Gen. 3:15), and being so, He also became an heir of a nature precisely like the one that you and I possess. ?Though He were a Son, yet learned He obedience by the things which He suffered? (Heb. 5:8).
Christ had to learn obedience because, as the Son of man, He had a part of Him that was inclined to rebelliousness and disobedience, just as we presently have (cf. Rom. 8:3). As Paul declared, ?The flesh lusteth against the spirit, and the spirit against the flesh? (Gal. 5:17), and as this is the situation with us who are men, so it was also with ?the Man Christ Jesus? (I Tim. 2:5) ?in the days of His flesh? (Heb. 8:15). He had to buffet His body and bring it into subjection. The Savior declared: ?Strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life? (Mt. 7:14). Jesus does not represent the situation any other way and, as He added, ?few there be that find it?.
?The time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God,? Peter says, and ?if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? (I Pet. 4:17-18). This does not mean that salvation in Jesus is in any way uncertain. He is able ?to save to the uttermost them that come unto God by Him? (Heb.7:25), seeing that He ever lives to make intercession for them.
Salvation is a great, and yet a difficult work. Men are not always alert to the danger of falling away or drawing back. The task that is assigned to us is to ?work out? our ?own salvation with fear and trembling? (Phil. 2:12-13). Even so we would not be equal to the task, except for the blessed reality that "it is God that" works "in us to will and to do of his good pleasure".
The righteous is scarcely saved because his enemies are so many, so persistent, and so strong, and he is so weak and sinful. Temptations are on every hand, and there are sinful lusts within the heart to which they may make their appeal. Those who would arrive safely in the world to come need the whole armor of light, the breastplate of righteousness, the helmet of salvation, the shield of faith, the sword of the spirit. Such ones must quit themselves like men, enduring hardness as good soldiers of Jesus Christ. They must fight the good fight of faith. They must watch and pray. It sounds as though salvation would be impossible to take hold of, and it is with men. But, bless God, with Him all things are possible.
Jesus said: ?Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest for your souls: for My yoke is easy and My burden is light? (Mt.11:29-30). The reason for the ?lightness? of the burden and the ?easiness? of the yoke, spoken of here, is that Jesus Himself is yoked together with the ones who are living and walking by faith. The believer is more than a conqueror when yoked together with Christ. But what hope do the careless, indifferent, and the slothful have? If men are careless, without zeal, without enthusiasm, without self-denial, can it be said of them that they are walking in the narrow way? Such ones are deceived, for there is no other way that leads to Heaven than the one spoken of by the Lord Jesus Christ.
