Many are called to be his elect, but few of the elect are chosen to receive and understand the truth of Christ's doctrine. This harmonizes with Matt 7, the wide gate being all of the elect that do not have the full knowledge of the doctrine of Christ, and the strait gate being those of the elect that the Holy Spirit has revealed the truths of Christ's doctrine. Jesus said "I thank thee, Father, that thou hast hidden these truths from the wise and prudent and revealed them unto babes".
so there is something the person has to do..
ie follow christ through the cross
follow the world and reject the cross
