"Therefore put to death your members which are on earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry." Colossians 3:5 Through the sacrifice of Christ on the cross, a person has the ability to gain something that was unattainable before and has been hidden as a mystery for ages: a new heart. The veil has been torn (Mark 15:38, 2 Cor. 3:14-16), so a person is able to put to death the members which are earthly - fleshly. A person can, by faith, leave the old on the cross and put on the new, the new heart and the new clothing of righteousness in the spirit. "Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him." Colossians 3:9-10

As soon as you enter the narrow gate, the narrow path then begins. The teaching of Jesus Christ is the narrow path. Every teaching out there is a path that someone walked. A path is simply a teaching. What teaching do you follow? “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it." Matthew 7:13-14
https://youtu.be/TLyO1uqPYjE Christ brought a teaching and this teaching is simple. Simply give up your life and follow Christ, His Teaching. You can't have both this world and God. This world is passing and those who want it, desire it, and seek it, will reap eternal death. There will be no favoritism or exception! But those who seek Heaven and give their life to God, will receive the gift of eternal Life. It's simply a question of what you Truly want. To follow Christ, you need to start completely over and leave everything behind, your understanding, your past, your feelings, etc. You can't patch your old self!
