My thirty-sixth move loomed on the horizon. Every move brought excitement, hesitation, negatives, and positives. Each new city offered opportunities for lessons and growth as life-long friendships and sweet family memories were made. As we moved again and again, I hoped and prayed I would finally find home – not just a house, but home.
I pondered this continual desire for home, and I realized Jesus is the way Home, He is the door. Jesus is the door Home!
No matter how many times I move, the Door Home stays open through Jesus. *Happy sigh*
The amazing, wonderful thing is, there is so much more in God’s word about the word “door.”
The door is an ark (refuge, safety, rescue) (Genesis 7:15-16).
God met to speak at the door of the tabernacle (Exodus 29:42, Exodus 33:9-10). The Lord appeared at the tabernacle in a pillar of cloud, standing above the door (Deuteronomy 31:15). Moses and Aaron went to the door of the tabernacle, fell on their faces and the glory of the Lord appeared to them at the door. (Numbers 20:6).
Sin crouches at the door it’s desire is for you, but you should rule over it (Genesis 4:7).
Jesus, The Door, opens our lives to an incredible, grace-filled, mercy of eternal life. Jesus is the door to release us from captivity of sin and worry. Jesus is the door for our ministry here on earth, doors that no man can shut. Jesus is the Passover lamb that takes away our sin, He is the door to our Heavenly Father.
Are you looking for the door home? Enter through The Door and you are always Home.
“I am the Door; anyone who enters through Me will be saved [and will live forever], and will go in and out [freely], and find pasture (spiritual security).” ~ John 10:9 (AMPC)
