ENTER THROUGH ME
AND BE SAVED
John 10:9-10 I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. He will come in and go out and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life and have it to the full.
John 14: 6 I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me
Jesus says "I am the gate, whoever enters through me will be saved.” He is the way to salvation. If we enter through Jesus we will be saved, we will go in and out, and we will find pasture. Woodrow Kroll says about this scripture “Jesus promises eternal results (salvation) and present benefits (going in and out in life with God’s provision) to those who let him be their door.”
John MacArthur says that here Jesus “is the entrance to the sheep fold that leads to proper pasture." In other words he is the only way to the Father. He is the only way to salvation. He is the gate or the door that allows us to know and enjoy the Father and eternal life in glory. There are many paths people take in life seeking fame, fortune, or peace of mind. All are blind alleys except the Way of Jesus. To find salvation we need to seek Jesus, ask his forgiveness, give our life to him and follow the Light.
Father, We thank you that Jesus is the gate, the door, that leads us to You and to eternal life. We thank you for this marvelous promise and that you have revealed the Truth to your sheep. We would be lost without you. We have a mighty God who loves and cares for us and he will never leave us. Help us cling to Jesus.
