“I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. He will come in and go out, and find pasture.”
Another of the “I am” statements of Jesus, this time He is saying that He is the gate to the pasture. Nobody can find salvation except through Jesus Christ. We may think we have found something great, but only Jesus can offer us “The Way”. This is for good reason, too.
Jesus is the one who paid the price for sin, the One who made the peace treaty between Man and God. It is through this reconciliation that we can be in fellowship with God. This is the way that God designed, and this is the way that God will accept: we really aren’t in a position to dictate terms to God.
So, Come on in! Enter through the gate and find pasture, that is to say find rest, peace and security. This is what Jesus has to offer, and it sounds like a pretty good deal to me!
