The sermon for 3 May 2020 will be based on the Gospel reading for that day which is John 10:1-10. John chapter 10 is part of the ‘Good Shepherd discourse’ of John’s Gospel. But in that reading Jesus tells us much less famously that he is ‘the gate’ (v7 and 9). I think this is easily the least recognisable of his seven ‘I am’ saying in the Gospel of John (can you think of the others?) Today we’ll look at why he says this and what it means for our spiritual protection and feeding. We also won’t ignore the role the Holy Spirit plays as the watchman (v3).
