I Am the Gate

Sunday Sermon Notes
John 10:7-10

The purpose
of a
door,
she said,
is to pass
through it;
not to ooh
and ahh…
whether
fiberglass or
or steel
or wood
or flesh–
you;
leaded glass
etched
beveled or
plain
I looked through
your window
but did not
walk in.
if
you are
the Gate
then why did
you let that
wolf in
on 109 Taylor
Drive?
or before?
on Lambert’s Run?
when lambs
bleated
wildly
in the night?
foolish lamb.
she
followed the
wrong voice
chose
the wrong
door
but nevermind
you poured over
the world
for me
and I am here
now
and you lay
down
your body
as gate
and I
pass
through you…
the wolves
will
never touch me
again.

    Your door was a prompt for me. 🙂 It is hard to understand the wolf thing, the danger we sheep have experienced. This expressed faith and trust getting stronger anyways.
