I was working on the songs for our 8:30 AM Sunday praise service this morning ans I was playing "I will enter His gates" it dawned on me that this is the whole reason for Lent and the penitent spirit that we are to develop during this time. When we truly allow ourselves to reflect on how truly inadequate we are and how impossible it would be for us to enter God's presence on our own merit, it shows us just how grateful we should be that Jesus paid the price for us!
Because of Jesus I CAN enter his gates with thanksgiving! Let us all prepare our hearts and minds for the celebration that is Easter. Let us be prepared not just to enter His gates, but to enter them with thanksgiving in our hearts!
