I read a very interesting meme the other day. It said, “The fact that there is a “highway to hell” and only a “stairway to heaven,” says a lot about anticipating traffic numbers.” What do you think? Of course, Jesus said something very similar in the Sermon on the Mount, when He said, “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it” (Matthew 7:13-14).
Everyone seems to expect to go to heaven, but Jesus went on to say that, “Not every one that saith unto me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of My Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 7:21). No, only those who “do His will” will be there. There are definitely more on the highway than on the staircase. Heaven is a prepared place, for in John 14:2-3, Jesus said, “In My Father’s house are many mansions, if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.” Jesus is preparing those mansions! I sure hope yours is next to mine!
