Dutch Doors

“No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other…”
Matthew 6:24

It is said that life is what you make of it and that we can live life to the fullest; enjoying all the splendors this world has to offer before we die. Sure, your friends, relatives and neighbors are all out going to places like Casinos, gambling and what-not. Or, partying at the local club, drinking and having a grand-ole time “living it up” as I once heard from one of my youth groups members, funny too when he said it. He said, “Jon, you know you have to let go and live it up…”.

But, let me remind you what Jesus said in Matthew 7:13-14 NLT, “You can enter God’s Kingdom only through the narrow gate. The highway to hell is broad, and its gate is wide for the many who choose that way. But the gateway to life is very narrow and the road is difficult, and only a few ever find it.” Just imagine that, only a “few” ever find it. Wow! It is heartbreaking to hear our Lord, our Savior proclaim that although many come, most will be lost and only a few will find salvation.

Remember those words in every choice we all make, day-to-day. Remember that, although we may think we can “have our cake and eat it too,” the Kingdom of God is not like Dutch Doors where we can come and go as we please to participate in this worlds festivities then go back through the gates of heaven thinking it will be alright. Life is to short to take chances of fate, especially gambling with where we will spend eternity.
