What is the purpose of a door? Is it meant to keep things in or keep things out? Does it open or does it close? Can a person be a door? The answer to these questions is yes. In John 10: 9 Jesus compares Himself to another object that we are very familiar with. He says “I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.”
Not only is He the door but each of us has a door to our hearts that Jesus wants to come in to. “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.” Rev 3:20. He never forces His way in, never knocks the door down.He just stands there knocking, hoping that one day you will let Him in.
Once we let Him into our lives we are telling Him that we are willing to help others come to Him. We become doorkeepers.The problem with being doorkeepers is that we often think we have the right to decide which people can come inside.We judge people based off of who they are, their clothing, and their passed behavior. Jesus knows each of our hearts and longs to be part of our lives. It’s not our job to tell people whether or not they can be saved. It is up to them and Jesus and whether or not they let Him in.
Share some ways that you can be doorkeepers for Jesus and remember we are all in this together, building each other up in preparation for the soon return of our Savior!
