    • Parable of the Mustard Seed
      • Daniel 4:10-15
      • Ezekiel 17:22-24
    • Parable of the leaven
  2. Don’t be hindered by its narrow focus
    • John 10:9
    • John 14:6
  3. Don’t be fooled by your familiarity with Jesus
    • 2nd Corinthians 13:5
  4. Don’t despair of hope

Discussion questions

  • What is your confidence for entering heaven?
  • Why does Jesus say it is hard to enter the kingdom?
  • Why do you think that Jesus insists on repentance?
  • What about the picture of the banquet makes entering the narrow gate worth it?
