Jesus says that He is the only door, that He is the door to the Father’s house. Jesus is the only door to Eternal Life. There is no other door and no other path that can lead us to Eternal Life. Everyone else will take us in a completely different direction. Jesus Christ is the Good Shepherd.
But it seems that the most popular idea in today’s age is that no matter which door we go through, in the end it will take us to God. The Word of God says it’s wrong to think so. Jesus says this clearly in the Gospel of John: “I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved.” (John 10: 9). Also Jesus says, “No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14: 6)
You see, this is a very crucial issue. Have you entered through this door? As you walk through this door, you accept this sacrifice of Jesus. You accept that He needs you to be saved. John 10:9 says, “He shall enter in and through these doors, and shall find pasture.”
Jesus Christ the Good Shepherd
You may be trying to think of Eternal Life, you may be looking for a door today that will take you there, so you know – you can only get there through a door called Jesus. If you enter through them, you meet Jesus there as the Good Shepherd.
These are just a few of the many scriptures that talk about the importance of faith, the importance of following, the importance of acknowledging the authority of the Good Shepherd.
Also concluding, the Gospel of John writes, “But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.” (John 20:31)
Jesus is the only door to Eternal Life
Beloved ones, friends, the only obstacle for you to be sure of your Salvation is that you do not believe in Christ. Christ that God’s Word reveals to us, not the image of Jesus Christ that we as humans may have imagined. Therefore, may God help us that each of us can say with confidence, “He is this door, He is this Salvation, and through this door, I have gone under the direction of this Good Shepherd”. He leads me. He’s ahead of me. I follow Him. “
Let’s pray to God
Beloved Heavenly Father, we thank You for reminding us of who Jesus is, how important He is to our lives and Salvation. Thank you for reminding me these things, thank you for revealing your great love for people. Thank you for telling me very clearly and naming what is the only way to live Eternal Life. Jesus is the only way you offer us today to be safe and confident.
Lord, I pray that every day we receive from you as a gift and this time will inspire us not only to think about these beautiful thoughts but also to live the true life.
You as a great and powerful God still want this live and true relationship with the creation – man. Lord, help us to see you as a person who is interested in our lives. As one who continues to love us despite of the many mistakes, fallings, sins.
Thank you for being the one who lifts us up and shows your Grace again.
Let each of us know you, our Heavenly Father. Father, let us know Jesus who He really is, not as we would like to see or imagine Him. Let we know Him as the door to life and as the Good Shepherd. Amen.
