Gatekeeper

Posted: September 20, 2015 in Uncategorized

Today I worked at the ball field all day…along with lots of other volunteers.  I spent a lot of the day at a gate that was used for handicapped access and officials, etc. This was not the main entrance. Many times throughout the day I heard the same comment from those passing through that way…a reference to me being the gatekeeper …

I wanted to allow everyone through that gate but that couldn’t happen. I started thinking about John 10, Matthew 7:13-14, and John 14…Jesus is the gate, He is the Way, the Truth, the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Christ. Jesus is our Shepherd, He calls His own sheep by name, the sheep follow Him for they know His voice! 

There is no greater peace than knowing Jesus as my personal Savior! Rescued and redeemed by His sacrificial death on the cross, I can approach the gate with the confidence that the Shepherd knows my name and I can enter by that narrow gate…for the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life…

Do you know the One who is the Way, the Truth, the Life? The One who gave His very life for YOU? Have you heard His voice?  

Ephesians 2:8-10 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
