 30C.   The Gate That The Servants Of God Must Enter


It is man's duty to serve God and to serve Him the way He wants us to, and this is by keeping His commandments. To serve Him some other way is  vain or worthless, and  is equivalent to not serving Him at all.

30C.1   What is the right way of serving God?

In Psalms 100:23-4, this is written:

2. Serve the Lord with gladness; Come before His presence with singing.
3. Know that the Lord, He is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
4. Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. (NKJV)

To serve God, man is commanded to enter His gates with thanksgiving.

30C.2   Which is this gate which the people who will serve God must enter?

In John 10:7, this is written:

So Jesus spoke to them again: In all truth I tell you,
I am the gate of the sheepfold. (NJB)

Jesus said the truth that He is the gate. . . . . .

30C.3   Man must enter in by Christ the gate, what kind of gate is He?

In the same verse John 10:7, Jesus says:

So Jesus spoke to them again:  I tell you most solemnly,  I am the gate of the sheepfold. (The Jerusalem Bible)

Christ says that He is the Gate of the sheepfold.

30C.4   Where could one find all those who entered by Christ as the Gate of the sheepfold?

In John 10:16, Christ states:

And the other sheep I have which are not of this fold;  them also I must bring, and they will hear My voice;  and there will be one flock and one shepherd.  (NKJV)

All those who entered by Christ are found in one fold or flock.

30C.5   Which is the Fold or Flock?

In Acts 20:28 it is written:

"Take heed therefore to yourselves and to all the flock over which the Holy Spirit has appointed you overseers,  to feed the Church of Christ which he has purchased with his blood."  (LBP)

The fold or flock is the Church of Christ, which Christ Himself purchased with his blood.

30C.6   How then can a man enter by Christ, as the gate of the fold or flock, which is the Church of Christ?

In I Corinthians 12:27, Apostle Paul explained:

Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually. (NKJV)

Man must become a member of the body of Christ — the true Church of Christ. It is therefore in the True Church that those who are called by God to serve Him must enter in, so God can be served and glorified.


The right way to serve God is to enter by or through Christ — the door or gate— to become a member of the body of Christ, the true Church of Christ. Christ is the gate that man must enter in order to serve God. If a man refuse to to follow this commandment of God, and instead make his own way of serving Him, then all his worship and services will be in vain or worthless (Matthew 15:9).
