Lock The Gates

 

“Most assuredly, I say to you,

he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door,

but climbs up some other way,

the same is a thief and a robber.

But he who enters by the door
is the shepherd of the sheep.”

John 10:1-2 [NKJV]

 

The thief comes only to steal and destroy,

But Jesus comes to give you abundant life.

When the devil cannot sneak in, he will wait until he sees

an opportunity; 

he will look until he sees room to enter.

Then, seeing the gateway open, he will come in.

 

But, Jesus has provided a way to lock the gates.

He has poured out His blood,

so the devil cannot touch you.

If you belong to Christ then you are saturated with His blood.

 

“Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood,

He Himself likewise shared in the same,

that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil,”

Hebrews 2:14 [NIV]
