7 So Jesus said again, “I am telling you the truth: I am the gate for the sheep. 8 All others who came before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them. 9 I am the gate. Those who come in by me will be saved; they will come in and go out and find pasture. 10 The thief comes only in order to steal, kill, and destroy. I have come in order that you might have life—life in all its fullness.
What is Your understanding?
That Jesus grants entry to the pasture. He is in control of giving love and forgiveness and allowing entry into a good life. Bad people are denied access to a good life because Jesus believes that all the bad people only want to steal, kill, destroy and spread hate instead of forgive, be honest and love everyone who deserves it.
