“Make every effort to enter through the narrow door, because many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able to” [Luke13: 24]

Make every effort.  Here’s an order from the Commander in Chief – make every effort!  In The Message it reads like this.  ” Put your mind on your life with God.  The way to life—to God! —is vigorous and requires your total attention.”

The goal in your heart is your God, it is that which you treasure the most—the goal in your life is a reflection of the goal in your heart.  There is a very real reality in the words—people do what people want to do—even when they hate what they do they would rather do what they do than change.

The mind is a powerful instrument—how we think governs our attitudes and our actions.  I once set my mind to loose weight so I learned what I needed to know about diets.  I reprogrammed my mind and worked the plan, I did so well I soon lost the weight necessary however, I was so ‘programmed’ I couldn’t stop loosing weight and had to reprogram myself to restore balance.  Like it or not how you think controls how you live and how you live controls the direction of your life!  “Think proper thoughts. Live proper lives! And you will think proper thoughts.” [Oswald Chambers]

When Paul wrote to the Colossians, he encouraged them in the same way,”Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.  For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.”  [Colossians 3:2-3]
