The Door

“ I am the Door.” Jesus says.

I know, this is a strange and often unnoticed statement.

When Jesus describes himself as ‘the door’ in John chapter 10, he also tells us that he is the Good Shepherd.


I am the Door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, 

And shall go in and out, and find pasture.


‘Door’ or ‘doorway’ is translated to 'a means of access'.

Jesus didn’t say he was the doorman or even the doorkeeper- nope, he is the door. He is the only way, the only doorway and gate into happiness and purpose, and ultimately, the Kingdom of Heaven.

Before the cross, this doorway was shut to us, barred and nailed by our sin that was a barrier between us and God. But when Jesus died on the cross, he threw this door open wide and freely to all who will accept him- washing us clean of our sin and allowing us to enter into his fold.

You may be opening and slamming every door and window you can find in a desperate attempt to fill the void in your heart and the emptiness of your life. But you will find yourself wandering through darkened hallways that seem to never end, with no hope of ever reaching your destination.

Until you accept His open invitation, you will never truly find whatever it is that you are searching for.

Turn to Jesus today- he’s knocking at the door.

Let him in.


Jesus Answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life.

No one comes to the Father except through me.

John 14:6
