The Narrow Way

"For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it." Jesus

7:14 difficult is the way. Christ continually emphasized the difficulty of following Him (Matthew 10:38; 16:24, 25; John 15:18, 19; 16:1–3; cf. Acts 14:22). Salvation is by grace alone, but is not easy. It calls for knowledge of the truth, repentance, submission to Christ as Lord, and a willingness to obey His will and Word. See notes on 19:16–28.
