Jesus told us that the gate to life is narrow and many don't even find it. Actually, our heart acts like a gate. We can keep it closed, leave it open a crack, or leave it wide open. Keep it closed and we keep God out completely. Leave it partially open and he won't be able to enter completely. If we leave it wide open, then he will enter to dwell within us, and we don't even need to be concerned about the narrow gate to life. We beat God to it, you might say, and this is being very wise.
