Therefore Jesus exhorts in another place. "Strive to enter in at the strait gate," strive as if in an agony, as if eternal life and eternal glory depended upon it, strive, nor leave off striving, until you are safe through the gate, and traveling in the way to eternal glory!
Jeremiah 31:21 ... Set thee up waymarks, make thee high heaps: set thine heart toward the highway, even the way which thou wentest: turn again, O virgin of Israel, turn again to these thy cities.
