Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him and bless His name. For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting, And His truth endures to all generations. Psalm 100:4-5 NKJV
The Jewish people were very careful who they associated with. They would not enter the home of a gentile. They would not eat with a gentile. Non-Jews were considered unclean. They did not accept just anyone into their community.
God loves all people. He accepts everyone who calls out to Him out of a sincere desire to know Him. His gates are open to everyone. He invites all people to enter into His courts through the doorway of faith in Jesus Christ!
