The Gate is Open

by Heather Tietz

This is the day that the LORD has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it! Save us now, we beg you, LORD! LORD, we beg you, send prosperity now.

Psalm 118:24-25

The gates of Heaven are open! You were waiting, hoping. Slumped perhaps against the wall of want, knowing something was amiss, wishing for a taste of greener grass but not knowing how to get there. Now. Here. The gates have swung wide. No longer are you imprisoned in sin, stuck in your addictions, lost in your loneliness, haunted by guilt, chained to repeating the same mistakes. Heaven is open to you, to your friends, to your enemies, to your family, to all the world, to all who desire God’s gift of Jesus. To those who wish for soul-healing, for all who see that Jesus is their salvation, their every day Savior, go in! Go! Praise God. He has opened the door!

God planned this day, this special day when Jesus was raised to life. He set this day into His itinerary long ago. He made it so that He could offer us a full life, a prosperous life, a life abundantly full of all the genuine goodness He has life overflowing here on Earth and life eternal. Today and every day, whatever might be right or very wrong with our world, we can rejoice that there is hope, there will be a saving from it all. There is an open gate in Heaven for us.
