Salt in my Kitchen....series

Step Right Up!

Bible Reading: John 10:7-10
 
    Then Jesus said to them again, "Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. 8 All who ever came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. 9 I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. 10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

You arrive at the door of the up-to-date supermarket. It swings wide open, apparently of its own volition.

Did you ever pause to figure out what makes it work?

Have you sometimes stood on the threshold doubting that the door would open? Or are you the
technically-minded type of young woman for whom the door poses no mystery? You're aware that by stepping on a specific area you activate the current that operates it.

More likely you simply accept the fact without question. In doing so, you are exercising faith. Faith in an "electric eye."

Apply the same faith - or logic- to the words of Christ, who says:

I am the door....
 
"Enter in," Jesus invites. There is no need to stand outside wondering if the door will really open. No need to figure out by what process He will open the door for you.
 
As simply as the youngest child, on a shopping trip with Mommie, stands expectantly waiting for the door to open, you can appropriate the benefits of heaven's open door. Just step right up!
 
 
I am the door, the Saviour said;
I am the only door.
