Matthew 7:13-14 - Heaven or Hell

Discussion Questions:

  1. The Bible teaches we can know what path we are on and have assurance of our salvation (cf. 1 John 5:1-13). Which path are you on? How do your beliefs and actions confirm your answer?
  2. What does Jesus’ teaching in Matthew 7:13-29 reveal about all other religions around the world? How does this truth challenge or confirm your understanding of salvation? What other passages of Scripture point to the exclusivity of the Gospel message?
  3. Why is the way to the "narrow gate” hard? How have you experienced such hardships in your life and how did the Lord comfort you during those times?
  4. How might this passage encourage or challenge you as you interact with unbelieving family, friends, and coworkers/classmates?
