When the prophet Isaiah described the Kingdom of God, he described a city where the “gates shall always be open” (Isaiah 60:11). And since Jesus taught us to pray, “Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10), we shouldn’t ignore this detail in how we live our daily lives.
Meditation: What gates are closed or closing in our nation, communities, neighborhoods, churches, and homes that should be left open?
