I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved.
Have you ever thought about how useful doors are? Not only are they used for going in and out, they also keep the heat in and the cold out; they keep what's on the inside safe and the intruder out. Doors lead to somewhere.
The Bible teaches that there is only One Door that leads to eternal life. In life, people go through many doors which do not lead to the Kingdom of God. Some try the door of good works. They say, “I can get to heaven if I only do enough good things, because God will honour all the good things I do.” It is good to do good things, but we cannot do enough good things to satisfy God. God demands perfection, and we are not perfect. If we are going to enter the Kingdom of Heaven, we have to be absolutely perfect. You ask, “Well, how will I ever be perfect?” We need to be clothed in the righteousness of the Lord Jesus. There is one door to the Kingdom, and that Door is the Lord Jesus Christ. We will never get to heaven unless we go by way of Him.
Beloved Heavenly Father, Your Son Jesus is the Door of salvation. Thank You that by His work on the cross, He has opened the gates of Heaven. Amen.
