Open the Gates
Isaiah 26 proclaims:
That day, this song will be sung … we have a strong city, to guard us he has set wall and rampart about us.
Open the gates! Let the upright nation come in.
Psalm 117 proclaims:
Open the gates of holiness, I will enter and give thanks.
Some modern commentators – for example, Nietzsche (1844-1900) – have rejected the security that comes from faith.
But what is on offer is a ‘strong city,’ with all the subsequent benefits.
Let us ‘open the gates’ that we may enter and give thanks to God
A grand idea.
