40 Songs for 40 Days – Day 19

Please refer to the March 5, 2014 – Ash Wednesday post for the Introduction to this Music Experience for Lent.

FSFD019 Song Title: Christ, the Good Shepherd – John 10:7-18  (If you don’t have a Bible handy, you can read this passage at BibleGateway.com)

Christ, the Good Shepherd, He is the gate.

Christ, the Good Shepherd, gave His life freely.

Christ, the Good Shepherd says, “I know My own.”

Christ, the Good Shepherd says, “My own know Me.”

In the same way, the Father knows Christ.

And He knows His Father, They will gather and lead.

Christ, the Good Shepherd, He is the gate.

Christ, the Good Shepherd, gave His life freely.

Christ, the Good Shepherd says, “I know My own.”

Christ, the Good Shepherd says, “My own know Me.”

About Bonita B. Evans

Since I was young I have felt God's presence in my life. I have been singing Christian music since I was a small child. Reading and studying the Bible have become more and more important in my life. In 2008, songs started coming into my head when reading, driving and also sleeping, so I decided to write them down and share them. For Christmas 2008, I recorded a ten song CD for my family and friends. For Advent 2009, I shared the first version of "A Flame in My Heart" with my church, family and friends. In 2011, I created and shared in this blog "40 Songs for 40 Days" for Lent. For Advent 2011 and 2012 I posted revised versions of "A Flame in My Heart". For Lent 2013 I reposted "40 Songs for 40 Days". I am not sure why this has all happened but I consider it to be a gift from God.

    Jesus is the gate to God’s salvation for us. He offers access to safety and security. Christ is our protector. Some people resent that Jesus is the gate, the only way of access to God. But Jesus is God’s son- why should we seek any other way or want to customize a different approach to God?
    In contrast to the thief who takes life, Jesus gives life. The life he gives right now is abundantly rich and full. It is eternal yet it begins immediately. Life in Christ is lived on a higher plane because of his overflowing forgiveness, love, and guidance.
    Jesus came to save Gentiles as well as Jews. His mission: to die for the sins of the world. People tend to want to restrict God’s blessings to their own group, but Jesus refuses to be limited by the fences we build. – LASB

      As always Dorey, Dear, thanks for your commentary from various sources. The comment “Jesus refuses to be limited by the fences we build” is such a good one to carry with us. He is always there, there for all, the only way to salvation – He is The Gate through all the fences!
