The Narrow Gate
Jesus continues “making his way to Jerusalem” – to the cross.
Christian discipleship, which is our following of Jesus, always involves the cross. That is “the narrow gate.”
Christian discipleship is not about connections or even membership. It is not enough to claim “We ate and drank in your company and you taught in our streets.”
Jesus surely teaches. But do I listen?
Christian discipleship involves listening to Jesus and living his way. Yet so often, Jesus’ way contradicts our political, cultural, economic, and societal values. There, the narrow gate!
