he loves the gates

Psalm 87:1-3 (JDV)

Psalm 87:11 The city he founded is among the sacred mountains.
Psalm 87:2 Yahveh loves Zion’s city gates more than all the dwelling-places of Jacob.
Psalm 87:3 Splendid things are said about you, city of God. Selah

he loves the gates

Why would the LORD love the gates of Jerusalem more than all the dwelling-places of Jacob? One reason is that he plans for all nations to come to this city, and worship him here. As all nations gather to praise the LORD, he will be accomplishing his purpose — a purpose that required the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. But these gates will be flooded with worshipers from every nation. His plan will be accomplished.

LORD, teach us to love the gates of your city, and invite our world to enter into your presence through them.
