Narrow Gate, Endless Adventures

“Yes, I am the gate. Those who come in through me will be saved. They will come and go freely and will find good pastures.”  John‬ ‭10:9‬ ‭NLT‬ http://bible.com/116/jhn.10.9.nlt

Consider how narrow a gate is in relation to the pasture it leads to. Very narrow. But once the sheep are through that gate, they've got an entire field to graze and frolic in. 

Jesus says that He is a narrow gate that leads to open pastures. Some people think that being a believer means a boring, restricted life. But this is just not the case! On the contrary, life with God is like being given beautiful pastures to move freely in. A place we can be free. A place we can be ourselves. A place to rest. A place to get to know our Shepherd that loves us and laid his life down for us.  

Yes, the gate is narrow. By only One Name can we enter. But once we are through that gate, our adventures are endless!
