The Narrow Gate

I just got back from an incredible camping trip in Montana. One thing that was so amazing about this trip is that in order to go to this camping site, we had to go into this narrow valley. And in this narrow valley, we couldn’t use our phones at all and we knew that.

We were willing to give up our phones, our social media, everything, in order to go to this beautiful campsite. Jesus in the gospel today, he says, “I’m the narrow gate. Enter and strive through the narrow gate. The narrow gate being me.” There are things that are weighing you down. Sins, temptations, addictions, unhealthy relationships. So many things that we have to get rid of from our lives in order to get into that narrow gate who is Jesus. My invitation for all of us today is just like the college kids and I entered into this narrow valley, get rid of anything that could connect us to the world. What are we willing to give up to be in the beautiful heart of Jesus? Get rid of the stuff that’s not from him.
