THE DOUBLE-LOCKED GATE
Two of Christ’s seven “I AM” statements are found in John chapter 10: “I AM the Gate” and “I AM the Good Shepherd.” Jesus is both the shepherd who calls to His sheep and the gate by which they enter His fold and are kept safe. Those who belong to Jesus are eternally secure. He saves them and He keeps them. And His Father, who gives them to Him, keeps them safe too.
It’s like Jesus is the gate and the lock, and the Father is the deadbolt. Dear believer, be assured in this.
