窄门 [Narrow Gate]

书卷:路加福音(新约)
作者:路加

路加福音13章24节:“耶稣对众人说:你们要努力进窄门。我告诉你们:将来有许多人想要进去,却是不能。”

今日默想:信徒是先进门,后走路。进门不过是开始,走路却是一生之久。没有不进窄门而能走正路的。我们一旦进错了门,随后所走的路也就错了,因此在起头的时候要特别小心。十字架乃是上帝国子民入门的考验。它叫我们今后的行动不得随意自由,处处受限制和拘束。我们若甘心受约束,乐意接受十字架的剥夺,除去一切不合于属天性质的东西,我们就得以走在永生的道路上。窄门就是十字架的道路。我们惟有经过十字架,才能找到上帝,也才能得着永生。这是永远不变的真理。

Book: Luke (New Testament)
Author: Luke

Luke 13:24 :“Strive to enter through the narrow gate, for many, I say to you, will seek to enter and will not be able.”

Today’s Meditation: We first enter a gate before start walking. Entering the gate is just a start, but the walk is permanent. No one can walk a proper way without entering the narrow gate. The wrong gate leads to different way. Thus, we need to be very careful when choosing the gate at the very beginning. The cross is a test for all the people of God. It limits our freedom and restricts our life. We can walk on the everlasting way if we are willing to be constrained by God, accept the deprivation of cross and give up anything that is not heavenly. The narrow gate is the way of cross. We can only find God and subsequently eternity through cross. This is an unchanging truth.
