I picture that as being a “gatekeeper”. Someone who is a guardian.
According to John 10:9 when we enter through the gatekeeper we will be saved and be able to come in and out and find pasture.
What does that mean?
When we “go in” it’s that very special place of spiritual rebirth where we are filled with The Holy Spirit. When we “go out” it’s into the world. And “find pasture” means we’ll be watched over, protected, nourished, and grow spiritually, because the Omnipresence, Omnipotence, and Omniscience of Yahweh is everywhere, no matter where we are.
With that kind of power I totally trust Yahweh to care for me. If you’ve ever been in a place where you fear for your safety you can imagine Yahweh being the force surrounding you as a protective wall, like a military fortress, only bigger and more powerful. He is Almighty!
So, what do we do to be in Yahweh’s fortress?
- Seek Yahweh
- Read The Word
- Be in fellowship with other believers
- Attend worship service
- Attend other fellowship events
- Find an accountability partner
- Someone who can help keep you in alignment with Yahweh
The more we’re in The Word, in prayer, and fellowship the less we will wander outside the protection of Yahweh.
