Revelation 3:8
8“‘I know your works. Behold, I have set before you an open door, which no one is able to shut. I know that you have but little power, and yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.”
Doors, doors, doors… How many doors do we go through every single day? Just stop and think about it; how many have you gone through just today alone?! If we consciously consider every single one (in our home, at work, in our cars, stores, doctors’ offices, etc. etc. etc.) it really would be amazing just how many there are.
Some lead to new rooms, to new buildings. Some are a pathway to a never before seen place. Some you have to turn a knob, some push a lever, some pull a handle, some you just walk up to and they automatically open. Some you push a button and they open, like your garage door. They come in all sizes, heights, widths, depths. Some are strictly utilitarian, others quite ornate. They all lead somewhere, and we are continually walking through them. The point is that they are everywhere, so many that we really hardly even notice them. Many of these doors we can take or leave, use or not use with very little consequence. (Like when visiting the hospital… do I go through the standard door, or through the one that goes round and round?)
BUT there is a door, THE Door, that we need to be conscious of every day, and aware of what it means. IT is the door that no man constructs, it is the door that God puts before us. The door to an abundant life, a life of meaning and purpose, a door to what is right and true, THE door to life everlasting! AND… this door is ALWAYS open! We just have to walk through it. Jesus has opened the lock and torn it off with His own sacrifice! IT is open, have you walked through by faith? Then… as His child, recognize the door to abundant living He puts before you… step though every day; it leads to greater joy and meaning in life than we could ever imagine… He knows the way, so trust Him… and… step through!
