Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest out. (Deu 28:6 KJV)Going in and coming out; The language suggests an image of one thing. A door. This is a device that allows one to come and to go at will. It is indicative of one of those core values we all treasure. Freedom. There is a door however, that only allows a one way passage, and that is a prison door. Passage through that door allows only a one way passage into the house of bondage. There are only two routes of egress, having done one's time and served a sentence. The other way is to escape.
But what about a third way? Get a better door! Jesus said this:
Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. (John 10:7 KJV)There are many doors of opportunity in life. We are completely free to choose which ones we enter. But how many of them are merely cleverly disguised prison doors?
There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. (Pro 14:12 KJV)
Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. (Luk 21:36 KJV)
He, along with vigilance in prayer causes a third door, yet the only REAL door to be present in all situations. All it takes is to pass through...
So, how about it?
