John 10:9 I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.

Salvation is amazing. It reconciles us back to God, it makes us children of God, it guarantees we’ll spend eternity with the Father.

In addition to salvation, the children of God will find pasture. Pasture is defined as land covered with grass and other low plants suitable for grazing animals, especially cattle or sheep. Throughout the bible, we are called sheep and Jesus is our Shepherd (John 10:11).

So, in addition to salvation we’ll have a place where we’re always abundantly supplied with everything we need and we are protected. The pasture represents everything we need to survive and Jesus is our Protector.

Praise God there is more than avoiding hell with this salvation package. Through Jesus, we are protected and abundantly supplied.
