Christ confirms this in Matt. 11:30: "For My yoke, (My way) is easy and My burden, (My load for you) is light." And in 1 John 5:3: For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments (His instructions, His Wedding Vows, which) are not burdensome.
Christ Commanded in Luke 13:24: "Strive 75(You don’t have to be perfect) to enter through the narrow gate, (Eternal Life) for many, will seek to enter and will not be able."
Christ knows that no one can keep the letter of the law; however Christ commanded us to Strive75 to keep the letter of the law. (Strive75 Strong's = to fight, labour fervently, to compete for the prize; which is Eternal Life) To have the Spirit of the Law, to receive Eternal Life Grace, your motive for striving to keep the letter of the Law must be the Love of the Law, Love of His instructions, Love of His wedding vows; which only comes when you are fully surrendering your will to keep the instructions of your Saviour.
Only little children can enter heaven. Matt. 18:3 A little child strives to walk, do right, striving to do what is pleasing to his Father Deut 12:8 but will always fall. Christ knows we will always fall but it’s the striving to walk towards Him, to do His will, follow His perfect instructions Psa 19:7 that allows Him to give us His saving Eternal Life Grace. John 14:15, 23
The last 1335 days Dan. 12:12 of earth’s history, just prior to the Second Coming, Christ will command in Rev. 18:4: "Come out of her My people!"
The answer is in Mark 7:7: "In Vain do you worship me (lose Eternal Life) teachings of doctrines of men... you have a fine way of letting go of commandments of God to hold to your traditions." We must find out what doctrines of men we are keeping and what commandments of God we are not keeping or we may lose Eternal Life at the Second Coming.
