7 Therefore Jesus said again, “Very truly I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep. 8 All who have come before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep have not listened to them. 9 I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture. 10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
God, Thank you for revealing yourself to me this week through these verses. Help me to take what you have shown me and allow it to change me. Help me not to just hear the words, but for them to make a difference in the way I live my life, in the way I seek to know more about who you are, and who I see myself as, as one of those under your watchful eye. I thank you for being the gate – for the protection, the care and the salvation that only you can provide. Amen.
