VerseD: Matthew 7:13-14

“Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.”

We know it is in Christ alone we are saved, and it takes personal sacrifice to follow Him.

The best way love others is to love and seek God with everything we are, for He first loved us.

Yet, He watches over and cares for each of us.

Trust in Him.

We try to run our own lives, but God has an ultimate plan. Trust in His plan, in Him.

The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.

Zephaniah 3:17, ESV

As we live in this world, we will be encumbered and afflicted with worries, anxieties, and fears.

But our God can and does save us, giving us strength and joy in the midst of evil and suffering. Lean on Him.
