The Door

Yesterday’s post, The Gate, could just as easily have been titled “The Door.”  This is because if you looked up the passage in the gospel of John where Jesus called Himself “The Gate” it might just as easily have said “The Door.”  What I’m saying is that about half of modern English translations render the original word as “gate” while the other half render it as “door.”  Either term works because the idea Jesus is conveying about Himself is handled well by either word.

Jesus is the entrance to life.  Through Him we find meaning, and hope, and peace.  He brings us into a world of joy that comes from serving Him.  Is your life built on a foundation other than Jesus Christ?  I hope not, but if it is, knock on The Door: He will open for you.  You do this by trusting Him – trusting that even though you can’t see your Creator, you  know He is there and that He loves you.

Call on His Name:  The Door.

The purpose of this blog is to proclaim Jesus Christ to those who want to hear about Him without having to join a church – or anything else – but Him.

    Beautiful, Mike. 😉

    There’s no doubt that love divine stays with you for a lifetime.
    When the soul is numb and life like a dream,
    Just cling to Him who can love and redeem.

    To me, His love is the greatest thing that runs for all eternity.
    Indeed, the door to His heart’s as close to you and me as two to three. 🙂
