Matthew 7:13-14 (NIV) The Narrow and Wide Gates

2 Corinthians 6:11-13 (NIV)

Ephesians 3:16-19 (NIV)
16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
Thank You, O Lord. You tell us to open W I D E our mouths and our hearts and that You will fill us with with Your love…so we are one of the few who find and walk through the small gate and narrow road that leads us to life. To YOU.
In Jesus name. Amen
Have you opened your mouth W I D E for the Lord to fill?
Opened W I D E your heart too?
Do you want the LORD to fill you up–and lead you to the small gate and narrow road?
