If You Walk Out That Door
Every door has a unique quality. Its design can lend exquisite taste to the entrance of any house or office. Its height can provide access to the tallest of people. Its width can give the largest of objects freedom to enter without a twist or turn. Each door has its own makeup of wood, iron, or brass. But the distinction every door has is where it leads. What is gained by entering or leaving through the door? Is it better to be on one side of the door than the other? If there is a man-eating tiger on one side of the door, it would be best to be outside that door. If it is cold and rainy on the side of the door upon which you stand, it would be best to be inside that door.
Jesus said of Himself, “I am the door; by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and shall find pasture” (John 10:9).
Jesus describes Himself as the door of security and access for those who believe in Him. Through Him, we have access to God in heaven (John 14:6). Drawing near to God is only possible through Him (John 6:44,45). Through Him, we are protected from thirst or hunger (Matthew 5:6). He provides all who come to Him a “pasture” to feed upon and be filled.
The door (Jesus) consists of grace, love, and mercy. Some are looking for a “way out” of sin. Jesus is the only access. We cannot make the door. Our way does not work (Proverbs 14:12). While some look for a “way out” of sin, others are looking for a “way to” God. Jesus is that “Way”. He is “the one mediator between God and man” (1 Timothy 2:5). If you need a door, come to Jesus while the door is open. When you go through Him, you will not be disappointed.
