I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture. (John 10:9)

This isn’t about hell. 

This isn’t even about eternal life. 

It is about life. 

His life in you. 

You think it is something to come. 

Maybe when you die. 

But hope is for now, not then. 

He is your hope. 

He is your joy. 

Share in it as part of your inheritance. 

Saved from misery. 

Saved from hopelessness. 

Saved from yourself. 

Hell bent on self destruction. 

He others you life. 

In all its wonderful glory. 

Greater and better than you can ever imagine. 

But you will never find out. 

Unless you pass through Him. 

He is the way, the gate. 

Only thorough Him. 

Not by your efforts. 

Or clever strategy. 

There is nothing manmade about this. 

It is His plan and purpose for you. 

To live full, fruitful lives. 

To be blessed and be a blessing to others. 

That is His heart. 

Here and now. 

Not then and later. 

Enjoy Him now.
