The Narrow Door

Preacher:
Passage: Luke 13:22-35

Around the time kids are crawling, and certainly once a toddler is walking about, warnings of all kinds are spoken: “Don’t touch, it’s hot,” “Don’t go near the stairs, you’ll fall down,” “Don’t put that in your mouth, it’s dirty!” That doesn’t end, of course, with childhood. As adults, we are inundated with catchy slogans, mostly from the government, warning about our health and wellbeing: “Arrive alive,” “Know your limit, play within it,” “Click it or ticket.”

The passage in front of us this weekend, Luke 13:22-35, contains a series of warnings from Jesus about who gets into God’s kingdom. In essence, Jesus says to his hearers: “Some of you think you’re getting in, but you’re not. Others of you have been told you’re automatically out, but you can actually get in.” We’re going to unpack those warnings together and do our best to ensure that we all know how to make it to heaven.
