Once we have come to know Christ as our Savior and our Shepherd, we will come to know Him as Sovereign if we will but yield ourselves fully to Him.
This is a description of the King of Glory resurrected and reigning. He has total victory. His glory is so great that the gates need to be widened to allow the fullness of His glory to come in. The truth is, we are the gates. Our surrender and submission to His glory allows His presence to come in. With His presence, we gain the victory.
As Savior we see what He did (22). As Shepherd we see what He is doing (23). As Sovereign we see what He will do (24).
As Savior He used a cross (22). As Shepherd He used the crook of the Shepherd's staff (23). As Sovereign He wears a crown (24).
