Often times we take for granted that rectangular piece of wood or metal at the entrance of our house. It is through "the door" that we enter and exit our home. It is through "the door" that we will be able to enter heaven. Jesus said: “...most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. All who ever came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. 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).
We all need to be aware that “The door” that leads to heaven is a narrow door and there won’t be many that will find it. “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it” (Matthew 7:13-14). “The door” will not be able to be opened forever. For the time will come that it will never open again (Luke 13:22-28). As an example of this please read the following passage of scripture as it relates to the “ten foolish virgins” (Matthew 25:1-13).
Christ’s door is open unto you this very day. If you haven’t done so already, why not now – come into His kingdom through the only “door” that will allow you to enter in? “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you” (Matthew 6:33). “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you” (Matthew 7:7). The question that all of us needs to answer is “what are we waiting for?” When the door shuts, we won’t be able to open it again!
