“Open to me the gates of righteousness; I shall enter through them, I shall give thanks to the Lord. This is the gate of the Lord; the righteous will enter through it. I shall give thanks to You, for You have answered me, and You have become my salvation.” (Psalm 118:19-21)

The Lord has provided the narrow gate which leads to righteousness through the grace of Jesus Christ. He is the narrow way and leads the way for all who follow. God Himself is our salvation and has come that we might have the life He intends for the faithful. Come through the narrow gate and begin the journey which never ends. In Him is light and the light is the life which leads to righteousness.

Lord, I have heard so many conflicting things. Help me, I pray, to come into the life which You have created that I might understand more fully the wisdom You grant to the faithful. Remove the obstacles that get in the way. Help me each step of the way on the journey upon which You have placed me. You must be the author and finisher of my faith for only You know the steps needed.

Lord Jesus, You are the door, the gate, the way of everlasting life. You have come that we may drink of the wellspring of the water of life. Guide me this day, Lord Jesus, in all the ways You know I need to go. Keep me on the narrow way that I may grow in righteousness and in Your likeness. I give thanks for all that You have done for the faithful that we may become what the Father intends. Amen.
