Gates Into The Future

There is wisdom in honoring healthy boundaries in life and not damaging borders of ownership or lines of good conduct or established ethics or moral limits, etc., however, a gate indicates access beyond, not damage to a border line.  Hopefully, I won’t be written off as just having a blasphemous fit, but I open gatethink we might be more mature sons of God if we view Acts as a beginning rather than an end.  Would we stay within our old fence lines if we saw ourselves as Bible characters instead of mere men in history?  Many will immediately fear I’m risking the curse for adding to the book, but the church world is probably in more danger of the “taking away” from the book curses because we see the Bible as a book that has a beginning and end like any other.  I am not talking about a new book of Mormon or revising the Canon, I am talking about the Bible’s legacy being the eternal and ongoing Word of God.  I am talking about having a part in the big picture in such a way that our life choices and accomplishments actually connect to God’s plan for a generation beyond our own or a town we don’t even live in or an election that hasn’t even registered candidates yet.  I pray we begin to see that we dare not lock down in traditions of the past and refuse to enter the gate into all that God has planned for us to do in the future and in our lifetime.
