We normally take doors for granted but recently construction workersÂ uncovered a remarkable door in Zurich, Switzerland. No one wasÂ looking for it, but it was found. Archaeologists believe the door is one of theÂ oldest ever to be discovered in Europe. The ancient door is about 1.5 metresÂ high and made of poplar wood held together by a â€˜remarkable systemâ€™.Â There is no question about it – when you find a 5000 year old incrediblyÂ preserved door, it is something to be excited about.
Iâ€™m not an archaeologist but I too found a remarkable, well preserved DoorÂ of historical significance. In my case, I was desperately looking for it. I am soÂ glad the Door was wide open when I got to it. I was outside in dense darknessÂ and I was deeply bothered. I had heard about a Door that people could enterÂ for safety and blessing but I knew I was still on the outside.
The greatest moment in my life was when I discovered the Door. As soonÂ as I found it I entered. That open Door made all the difference in my life. IÂ discovered the one and only Door to God and eternal life in Heaven. OneÂ beautiful Bible verse explains what I am talking about: Jesus said â€œI am the door.Â If anyone enters by Me, he will be savedâ€ (John 10:9).
Our sins are a huge barrier between us and God. On one side of the barrierÂ is darkness, sadness, emptiness, disappointment, bondage and many otherÂ sad things. On the other side is light, happiness, acceptance, forgiveness andÂ eternal life. The awesome message of the Bible is that the Lord Jesus ChristÂ came down to earth to break through the barrier of our sin and to open up theÂ way for sinners to be brought to God.
The greatest Door of all is not one that has been buried for thousands ofÂ years. It is the ONE who was buried but was raised from the dead after threeÂ days. He wants to welcome you. He reassures all who come to Him, â€œ…the oneÂ who comes to Me I will by no means cast outâ€ ( John 6:37).
Have you found the Door? Have you entered? What a tragedy if you findÂ yourself on the outside of a closed Door in the future. Opportunities do comeÂ to an end.
Consider the open Door and enter today!
