After Nehemiah had the walls and the gates restored in Jerusalem, the place that God chose for His temple and His presence, Nehemiah’s order was that the gates would be guarded carefully, because of the enemy that was lurking on the outside. In the New Testament time in which we are, God calls our bodies the temple of God, the place where He wants to dwell.
Like the city, we also have gates in our lives , that need to be guarded. Marelize shares on the physical gates of our bodies, as the spiritual gates into our lives – of how it can be defiled, but also how it can be cleansed and healed, and be guarded, so that we can fulfill the plans that God has for us on the earth.
