A gate is something that gives us access to something. We go through a gate to get to the other side, and it is a barrier keeping some things or someone out. It controls who comes in and who goes out.
Jesus the Gate of Salvation who chose to lay His life down that we might have life. Jesus, the Gate is the way,the truth and the life and only through Him do we have access to Heaven's Gate!
By Jesus we can leap out of the sheep pen and find green pasture, and lie down beside the peaceful waters, and find guidance and safety. Yes! abundant life, here and in the kingdom to come!
