John 10:7, 9-10: “So he explained it to them: “I tell you the truth, I am the gate for the sheep. Yes, I am the gate. Those who come in through me will be saved. They will come and go freely and will find good pastures. The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.”

The function of a gate is to either let someone in or to keep someone out.  A sheep gate would let the sheep in and keep the wolves out.  Jesus says that He is the gate for all humans who want to enjoy full protection.  Jesus is our safe haven.  Obviously, there is an enemy out there competing for our attention with the purpose to steal from us, destroy us, and ultimately kill us.  Jesus has dedicated His life to prevent this from happening.  He wants to save us and give us the opportunity to thrive.  He wants us to experience a meaningful life that makes a difference, a life that blesses others and in the process blesses us.

You are the Gate, Jesus, and behind this Gate opportunities unfold.  Through You is Life in abundance, Hope for the nations, Purpose for every life lived.  I love You.
