Last week we discussed the actions in the book of Acts.
- Jesus Goes Up
- Holy Spirit comes down
- The Church goes out
When we read John, chapter ten, most of the words of the chapter are in red ink, showing that they are, “from the mouth of Jesus.” Notice with me the phrasing of verse nine:
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’s declarations are powerful! Any person trusting in Jesus in verse nine…
- He shall be saved
- He shall go in
- He shall go out
- He shall find pasture
As the church, Christians, leave the building of fellowship to return to the world to live and work, we need Jesus! Jesus is described as the Great I am, and He is teaching, “I am what you need.”
C.H. Spurgeon wrote that Jesus is the entrance to the true church and the only access to God himself.
The promise of Jesus is that no one can be lost who takes Jesus as the door of faith for salvation. Jesus is the only door, an open door, a wide door, a safe door, and He is your door to salvation.
This is our message for a hurting generation and our message of hope for families and friends we love. Jesus is the answer!
You are loved,
