Matthew 7:14, "For the gate is narrow and the way is hard...those who find it are few." The gate of Faith is narrow because we are not permitted the "Fleshy Things" like Pride, Selfishness, and we are not permitted to accept all belief systems where everything is acceptable and everyone's "truth" is valid. The road of the flesh is not the road of the Spirit. The road of the Spirit is only hard because we experience great "fleshy" trials and tribulations that we don't want to give up! When we experience the narrow gate guarded by TRUTH, don't we want more than anything the Peace and JOY of JESUS, and when we have HIM we step through the "Wall" of deceit? The "Wall" of deceit are the lies that made us think the "World" was all there was. We didn't really believe in the Spiritual World and JESUS. That's why the road is narrow; there is NO BAGGAGE ALLOWED!
Psalm 139: 23-24
GOD IS GOD!
