We normally take doors for granted but recently construction workers uncovered a remarkable door in Zurich, Switzerland. No one was looking for it, but it was found. Archaeologists believe the door is one of the oldest ever to be discovered in Europe. The ancient door is about 1.5 metres high and made of poplar wood held together by a ‘remarkable system’. There is no question about it – when you find a 5000 year old incredibly preserved door, it is something to be excited about.
I’m not an archaeologist but I too found a remarkable, well preserved Door of historical significance. In my case, I was desperately looking for it. I am so glad the Door was wide open when I got to it. I was outside in dense darkness and I was deeply bothered. I had heard about a Door that people could enter 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 soon as I found it I entered. That open Door made all the difference in my life. I discovered the one and only Door to God and eternal life in Heaven. One beautiful Bible verse explains what I am talking about: Jesus said “I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved” (John 10:9).
Our sins are a huge barrier between us and God. On one side of the barrier is darkness, sadness, emptiness, disappointment, bondage and many other sad things. On the other side is light, happiness, acceptance, forgiveness and eternal life. The awesome message of the Bible is that the Lord Jesus Christ came down to earth to break through the barrier of our sin and to open up the way for sinners to be brought to God.
The greatest Door of all is not one that has been buried for thousands of years. It is the ONE who was buried but was raised from the dead after three days. He wants to welcome you. He reassures all who come to Him, “…the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out” ( John 6:37).
Have you found the Door? Have you entered? What a tragedy if you find yourself on the outside of a closed Door in the future. Opportunities do come to an end.
Consider the open Door and enter today!
