The life of faith will have its share of sleepless nights. The question is whether we are having them for the right reasons.

In this episode we look at Jesus’s parable of the “narrow door” – a stern warning to those who, in their self righteousness, would never bother to question their citizenship within the Kingdom of God. But question they should, question we all should. NOT to foster undue fear, shame and/or anxiety, but so that – like an athlete in training – they might recognize the very real need to be ever on task, preparing or the critical work of the kingdom that is our true mission.

In an effort to be especially practical, In the sermon I mention a Rule of Life we did at Canvas for Lent 2016. Here is a link to the .PDF file. If you want to hear more about the idea of Rule, you can listen to Ep. 131 of the podcast.  Or read more about Rule here.

The text for this episode is Luke 13:22-35.
