“Then Jesus said to them again, ‘Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep…I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.’” (John 10:7, 9)
Jesus Christ told his disciples that He was many things. He said He was the way, the truth, and the life. He said he was the bread, the living water; He talked about new wine and us becoming born again and being a new creation. Here, He states that He is the door.
The door represents a passageway that is guarded by an obstacle, that being the door itself. Most doors have locks and can be opened, as well as, closed. Jesus says that He is the ‘door of the sheep’. If we have been called to be His disciples, then we are His sheep and the sheep of His pasture. If we know that we enter into the Kingdom of God, we enter into the Kingdom by the door…He is the door, the gateway to His Kingdom.
We enter into Him by and through Him. All of the redemption of man is done in Him. He is the one Who saves, and it is He Who keeps us saved in His Kingdom. Abiding in Him is knowing that we have the opportunity to get to the door, Jesus Christ, and that His blood shed on Calvary is the entrance payment for us to get through the door into Him.
Come to know Him as Savior, yes, and come to know Him as Lord, as you come to know Him personally by walking into what He has provided for us. He has provided His rest in His holy Presence.
Behold, Lord, I come to You and find peace and rest in You. It is in You, alone, Lord, that I see and know that You have provided the way and You show us the way by the being the Door into your Kingdom. Thank You, Lord for all that You have done and are doing in my life!
