Sometimes as we approach the gate of faith, we are unsure of who we are. We can become so accustomed to the other gates that we have experienced in our lives that we think that the gate of Christ is just another gate where we have to prove that we are someone worthy to enter. Yet as we come to the gate and encounter Christ and His flock, we find that the gate is not to allow those who are worthy to enter, but rather it is a way for the shepherd to shepherd his sheep, for he loves them all and knows them by name.
