Today’s message was preached on Sunday the 8th of March 2015 at International Christian Brethren Church in Sweetwaters under the leadership of Pastor ZH Mthethwa. The text was taken from Matthew 7:13-14
- “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”
The message is in isiZulu language due to that it was delivered to isiZulu speaking audience. This sermon reminds the church that we are supposed to enter through the straight gate and walk on the narrow way, because the wide gate and the broad way will lead to destruction. These are few points that were covered in the sermon:
- – The Narrow way is not an easy way
– The Narrow/Strait gate is Christ Himself and he is also the way behind it (John 10:7-9; 14:6)
– The Narrow way requires one to be ready to lose his life as stated in Luke 9:23-24 and Luke 14:26-27.
– The Narrow way is the way of God and it is informed by God’s word, not by human opinion.
– The Narrow way has few people on it, as opposed to the broad way which has many people walking it. The Lord Jesus Christ said, “narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”
– The Narrow way requires one to pray for his/her enemies and also to love them.
– The Narrow way is marked with sufferings, tribulations and persecution. These are the things we need to endure if we wish to be glorified with Christ, seeing that Christ went through the same.
