3 Lord Easy to say (6:46); only few obey RespectRight sourceRight time Calvinism: Few saved, unconditional Secularism: Few lost, ~unconditional~ Universalism: All saved, unconditional Rabbis: All Israel, unconditional

4 I. The Clarifying Question II. The Conclusive Answer

5 Strive and Strain! (24) You – personal, individual, Jn. 21; Ac.5 “You must struggle on to get in” (Wms.)  Jn.18:36; 1 Co.9:25 Strain every nerve to enter (BDAG) To endeavor with strenuous zeal, strive, to obtain something (Th.)

6 Entrance Not automatic or unconditional Through the narrow gate (keeps out) will not be able Many will seek to enter in and... will not be able What makes this gate so difficult? Not that it is narrow in itself, but that we want to take in our pride, our self-will, our darling sins – Augustine
