From Pastor Perry

12/29/2015 Matt. 7:12-14

The Golden Rule

“So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.
“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.

 

Jesus’ teachings in the Sermon on the Mount show us our sins and describe the path on which we, as repentant children of God, seek to walk. Luth: “The true disciples remain on the hard path or enter through the narrow gate (Matt. 7:14), namely, the Word of God, saying: ‘I am helpless. May God help me. It all rests in His hands. He promised and said: “Just cling to the Word, and I will uphold you. When you find yourself in any extremity or distress, you will learn to continue in God’s Word. This will liberate you and make you a true disciple” ’ ” (AE 23:401). [LSB]

 

I pray:  Dear Jesus, walk with me on the narrow way that leads to life, lest I stumble or stray. Amen.

Look at the Words say they "fell away". The had it, but lost it. Just like the Bible says your name can be blotted out of the Book of Life.
