Doors are inevitable things in our life. It helps us to get in and get out of a house, room, building and so on. Usually the number of rooms in a building will be almost equal to the number of doors in the building. Doors are used for safety and privacy and to restrict the passage of incoming and outgoing traffic.
There are different kinds and types of doors. Wooden doors are most common in houses were as glass doors in offices and shopping malls. In big warehouses they use shutters instead of doors. Again there are manually pushed doors and automatic doors. There are sliding and swinging doors. Such goes the different kinds and types of doors. However and whatever type of door it is it’s primary objective is safety.
Can you consider a huge building with lots of rooms but no doors! It’s of absolutely no use as nobody can get in and out of the building. Therefore doors are not an accessory but it’s mandatory for the access of buildings and the rooms.
Any unauthorized person who gets in a building either by breaking a door or by any means other than a door is a thief and he comes to loot the valuables. Therefore it’s needed to secure the doors with locks, alarms and other security measures as we leave our houses offices etc.
In airports we can see a door at the security check point. Even though it’s a door not everyone can pass through those doors but only authorized people can pass through. For instance you should have a valid passport, ticket and you should not have any unauthorized things with you to pass through the security door.
Like an airport how we travel from one country to another, we are all travelers in this world. We were born in a specific time and we all will die in a specific time frame. We are in the middle of a transition now. When we die our lives never end here but it’s a new beginning to the after life. As a door opens from one room to another the door of death opens another one way door to after life or eternity. But where we heading is decided in this transition. There are only two choices heaven and hell. Heaven is where God lives and hell is where satan is. If heaven is happiness hell is sorrow and weeping.
Heaven is the place where God wants all of us to reach. But unfortunately satan deceived our fore parents Adam and Eve and as a result we all became sinners and we had no way to get in heaven as God is holy. Therefore God who loved the man made an alternate way or door to regain the lost paradise for mankind and we find that door in the gospel of John chapter 10 verse 7 and 9 – Jesus.
Therefore Jesus said again, “Very truly I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep. (John 10:7 NIV)
I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. (John 10:9 NIV).
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. (John 14:6 NIV)
John 3:16 says “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16 NIV).
Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross! (Philippians 2:5-8 NIV)
Jesus who been living in all splendor in heaven but choose to come down to this wrecked earth for saving us from the bondages of sin! And in Acts 4:12 says there is no other name in the whole universe under heaven other than the name of Jesus Christ.
It is a not a fairy tale but is a reality that Jesus came to this world, He lived as a common man among us and He suffered all problems what we face in life and when the time came He gave himself at the cross so that a new way or door to heaven was opened.
To get into this door we don’t have to pay anything but accept and give our lives to Jesus by admitting we are sinners and accepting Jesus as Lord and Savior by believing in heart and confessing by mouth as it’s said in Romans 10:9,10 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame.” (Romans 10:9-11 NIV).
My dear readers if you haven’t received Jesus as your Lord and Saviour please accept him. He will come in our hearts and fill with heavenly peace and joy above all He will give us strength and guidance to face tomorrow and when we die one day He will take us to His place which is Heaven. Let’s not leave behind this amazing grace!
Jesus is that very Door what God has made to save the mankind. For those who accepted him as Lord and Saviour and living a holy life are like those who got a valid passport and ticket and doesn’t carry any unauthorized things who can pass through the security door at airport.
Those who haven’t cannot pass through the door as in the airport and cannot go to heaven but hell.
Where are we heading today? Are we in the path of righteousness or in the path to destruction? If you are in the path of destruction please turn around and come back to Jesus the door of salvation and accept Jesus in life and lead a holy life and be in the path of righteousness to go to heaven!
“Here I am (Jesus)! I stand at the door(your heart) and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.” (Revelation 3:20 NIV). Will you open your door of heart for Jesus today?
“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. (John 14:1-3 NIV).
