“Liberated by the Gate/Door”

Lugarno Peakhurst Uniting Church http://lpuc.org.au

Welcome

Good morning to you, or whatever time it is at your place. Today we are going to look at a very familiar passage of scripture. It is from the lectionary for today, John 10:1-11, concerning the imagery of Jesus being a door or gate for his sheep. We will however, refer to two doors, Jesus and another at the end of our study.

From our reading we are changed by Jesus, the door, when we enter the safety of his pastures. Entering that safety, however, does not exclude our vulnerability in this world. Even so, rather than cower inside the door, we live boldly in the midst of the world as those confident of our place within the door so that others might be drawn to the door, being Jesus Christ.
