I’m feeling a call to fewer words this morning. Psalm 118 is replete with expressions and calls to those of us who wish to “enter the gates of justice,” those who “come in the name of the Lord.” Of the many opportunities offering invitation, I am drawn by verses 19 & 20 that call out to me saying: On this path the gates of holiness are opened wide. I enter it and consecrate myself in gratitude. God’s gracious invitation is a door ajar and anyone who walks in right relationship may enter in. (Ancient Songs Sung Anew; the Psalms as Poetry, p.299)
It may only take a single step…Are you willing to take the risk of walking in?
