April 29 – Sermon on the Mount – Which Way to Heaven?

Read Matthew 7:13-14 and Colossians 3:2

Many people consider Heaven and how to get there. Our culture is full of songs and movies considering heaven.

Many people write, sing and talk about heaven. They may ask, “How do you get there”?

Jesus said in Matthew 7 that only a few find life – eternity with Jesus. The word FIND means “to discover by searching.” Are you searching for it?

The Bible says it is crucial that you say – out loud – that Jesus is Lord and that you must believe that God raised Him from the dead. That is how you are saved! That is how you find Heaven!

Have you done this? (see Romans 10:9) If you have, your next step may be to be baptized!

The key to understanding verses 13-14 is that many people choose the broad way of this world but few choose the narrow way of following Jesus. The broad way has a wide gate and the narrow way has a small entrance.

The wide ways of this world – immorality, ungodliness and debauchery – are all around us.

Which way is Heaven? The way to Heaven is through Jesus Christ!

Following Jesus requires setting your mind on things above (Colossians 3:2), running the race before you (1 Corinthians 9:24) and obeying the word of God (Psalm 37:5). Many people know this way but are not willing to choose it – they love this world so much and can’t just let go of it.

Can you let go?

Jesus answered in John 14:6 by saying there is only one way!

Do you know the one way to Heaven? Who can you tell about Jesus so they can know and believe as well?
