“I AM the Door.
If anyone enters by Me, He will be saved
and will go in and out and find pasture.”
Doors signal an entrance.
Since the Garden of Eden’s passageway was marked by the cherubim and flaming sword entryways have been noted by man-made doors. Fashioned of stone or wood, leather or cloth, adorned with gold and formidable or crudely assembled and decrepit, passageways are marked, but not all are visible.
Yet God in His great kindness told us the portal to eternal life is His Son, Jesus.
Not only is He the entrance to salvation, but He also is the Source of everything we need on our pilgrimage to our eternal home.
Peter, who walked on water then sank, who betrayed Jesus then repented, wrote a letter near the end of his life confidently telling us Christ “has granted us all things that pertain to life and godliness.” He added that through the promises of God we can become “partakers of the divine nature” (2 Peter 1:3,4).
Do you need a taste of the divine nature in your life today? Are you struggling with emotions, feelings, desires that are anything but godly? How many doors have you tried in your quest for fulfillment?
Oh, that you would run to and through the Door! Jesus is the entrance. He will give you everything you need today and in every circumstance yet ahead.
Walk with Him and experience the peace of living in His pastures.
