We must keep before us every day these words of the Good Shepherd our Lord Jesus Christ who expressed that “THERE IS NONE GOOD BUT ONE, THAT IS, GOD:” (Matthew 19:17).
We must therefore keep our hearts with all diligence in the LOVE of GOD and JESUS CHRSIT in HOPE and FAITH looking to the DAY of CHRIST to obtain ETERNAL LIFE in HEAVEN (Matthew 24:36, 25:31-34).
“[AND WE KNOW THAT ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD TO THEM THAT LOVE GOD], to them who are the called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28).
When a young man wanted to know what he must do to inherit eternal life, this was the communication with Jesus, as it is wrotten:
“And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?
And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.
He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness,
Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself” (Matthew 19:16-19).
Our Lord JESUS also reminds us, saying: “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat; because strait is the gate, and [NARROW IS THE WAY, WHICH LEADETH UNTO LIFE], and [FEW THERE BE THAT FIND IT]” (Matthew 7:13–14).
“For many are called, but [FEW ARE CHOSEN]” (Matthew 22:14).
“[IF ANY MAN WILL COME AFTER ME], [LET HIM DENY HIMSELF], and [TAKE UP HIS CROSS DAILY], and [FOLLOW ME]” (Luke 9:23).
“In the world [YE SHALL HAVE TRIBULATION]: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).
“He that loveth his life shall lose it; and [HE THAT HATETH HIS LIFE IN THIS WORLD SHALL KEEP IT UNTO LIFE ETERNAL]. [IF ANY MAN SERVE ME, LET HIM FOLLOW ME; AND WHERE I AM, THERE SHALL ALSO MY SERVANT BE]” (Matthew 12:24-26).
“[FEAR NOT, LITTLE FLOCK]; for it is your Father’s [GOOD PLEASURE TO GIVE YOU THE KINGDOM]” (Luke 12:32). “I am with you alway, [EVEN UNTO THE END OF THE WORLD]. Amen” (Matthew 28:20).
