The Door

Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.  All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.  I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.

John 10:7-9

Jesus is called many things in the Bible.  In this passage, He refers to Himself as “the door” and “the door of the sheep.”  He is here emphasizing the fact that He is the only way.  Some houses have many doors.  Some sheep folds have many doors.  But not Heaven.  Heaven has but one Door, and Jesus Christ is it.

Verse 8 tells us about the thieves and robbers.  They try to enter into the sheep fold other ways.  They try to find a different way.  It is the same today as it was then.  There are many people today who do everything they can to find another way to get to Heaven.  For some reason, they refuse to accept the Lord Jesus and they refuse to admit their need for Him.  They can see the one true Door, but they refuse to walk through it.

Sadly for them, there is no other way.  There never has been and there never will be.  Jesus told these people “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved…”  It is the same today as it was then.  Have we been through the one true Door?  Have we come to the Saviour?  If so, we can “go in and out, and find pasture.”  We can rest under the protection of the Good Shepherd.  If not, we need to come to this door today!
