John 10:9 – “I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.”
Jesus is the only door that leads to salvation. No other door can grant a person salvation. Jesus is the only means by which we can receive eternal life (John 3:16). Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. No one can come to the Father, except through Jesus (John 14:6). Through Jesus alone we have access by one Spirit to the Father (Eph. 2:18).
Jesus is not only the shepherd of the sheep, but also the door of the sheep. One who believes the gospel (Heb. 11:6) and repents of sin (Luke 13:3) is assured of being in “the fold” and of having entered by “the door.” As followers of Christ, Jesus is both our Shepherd and the Door to the sheepfold who provides for all our needs. Knowing that the world can be a place where the devil disguises himself as an angel of light, we ought to be vigilant (1 Pet. 5:8). We are always under His protection. More importantly, we are fully confident that “when the Chief Shepherd appears, [we] will receive the crown of glory that does not fade away” (1 Pet. 5:4).
Are you prepared to be willing to enter through the door and feast with Him? He expects each and every one to be part of the wedding banquet of the Lamb. Only His sheep can hear His voice to enter through the door. Are you His sheep?
