“When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory.
All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep
from the goats. And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those
on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world
. . .’ Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared
for the devil and his angels . . . ’” (Matt 25:31-35, 41)
"Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in
by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it." (Matt 7:13-14)
How do we enter by the narrow gate, and inherit the Kingdom? Jesus said:
“Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” (John 3:3)
How can we be “born again”, and “enter” through the door of Christ?
. . . if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead,
you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto
salvation. (Rom 10:9-10)
Who is in need of this salvation? We all are!
. . . for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God . . . . (Rom 3:23)
To whom is this salvation available? Again, to all of us!
But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name
. . . . (John 1:12)
You can receive this salvation right now, where ever you are! One of the thieves crucified with Christ received
it while hanging on the cross (Luke 23:39-43). The penitent tax collector received it in the Temple as he acknowledged
his sins and asked for God’s mercy (Luke 18:9-14). Cornelius and his household received it in their home as they listened
to Peter share the gospel message (Acts 10). All of these asked in different ways and situations – there is no “formula”
or standard prayer that must be followed. The only thing that all of these individuals had in common was this – humility.
They humbly acknowledged before God their shortcomings as sinners, and recognized Him as the only remedy for their predicament.
The LORD is near to those who have a broken heart,
And saves such as have a contrite spirit. (Ps 34:18)
Regardless of how nice, successful, noble, and honest we might be as individuals, when we are judged by God’s holy standard,
we are all sinners who have fallen short of His grace. Have you acknowledged that in your life? If so, has it broken your heart?
Have you turned to the one name given among men by which we must be saved (Acts 4:12)? If not, will you do it now? Just ask in
your own way – there are no magic words to say. From a humble heart offer up a simple prayer, perhaps like the following:
“Heavenly Father, I confess that I am a sinner. I fall short of your holy standard. I want to be among those to whom you
say ‘enter in to the Kingdom.’ I believe that You sent Your Son, Jesus, to die and pay the penalty for sin, including mine.
I ask that You apply the righteousness of Christ to my life, and that as I receive Jesus as my Savior, I may become one of
Your children. Amen.”
If you have not prayed a prayer similar to this, I hope that you will soon. The Bible says that today is the day of salvation
– and we all know that tomorrow is promised to no one.
Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation. (2 Cor 6:2)
