Psalm 118:19-20 (NKJV) 19 Open to me the gates of righteousness; I will go through them, And I will praise the Lord. 20 This is the gate of the Lord, Through which the righteous shall enter.
What is the gate of righteousness? Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ made it clear when He said, “I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture” (John 10:9 NKJV). The Lord Jesus Christ is the Way. In fact, He said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6 NKJV). “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16 NKJV). Christ has come to redeem us and bring us an abundant life. Christ is the door into the sheepfold and He is the door of the sheep, He will lead the faithful remnant of Israel out of the Great Tribulation. Christ is the door of salvation for both Jews and Gentiles. “This is the gate of the Lord, Through which the righteous shall enter” (Psalm 118:20 NKJV). Those who want to draw close to God will enter God’s heavenly Kingdom by accepting the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior. “Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12 NKJV). My friends, we are saved by grace alone in Christ alone.
God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
