John 10:9-11 KJV
“I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.”

A door is an entrance to one’s intrigue, a pathway to a person’s goal. A house without a door has no life.  A person without a door to enter has no home. Jesus used the door analogy to point out that the knowledge of God without Jesus will not save anyone. Jesus points out the truisms of the scripture; that is, God will judge all sinners, except those that receive grace, the saving gift of God – JESUS CHRIST, the Savior.
The Christian experience gives freedom and liberty. This is because, the author of Salvation; Jesus Christ, is leading the way. Literally, freedom is freedom! Freedom from all impediments, release from demonic oppressions, absolute healing from sickness, provision (pasture), etc.
 
When we ignore the gifts of God through Christ,we are reminded that our enemy will take advantage to steal, kill and destroy. Watch out for those friends that have another plan for you other than what Christ has given! It might sound good, look good but the end is doom. Whatever God would not approve cannot save, it will kill.
The life of freedom must anchor in Jesus, and for this reason, God became flesh, died on the cross and shed His blood for all sinners.
 
Do not be wise in your own way. Repent and walk with Jesus! Remember, Jesus is the way, the truth and the light. No one can go to the Father (to heaven) except through Him. His grace is greater than your sins, so do not listen to a second opinion, REPENT!
 
PRAYER: ‘Lord Jesus, I come to you. I confess my sins and repent of them. I believe you died for my sins, I believe God raised you from the dead, I believe you are my Savior. Thank you for saving me. Amen.
If you make this prayer, walk the path of the scripture,  you will not remain the same. 
 
 
Scripture of the day: “The time has come,” he said. “The kingdom of God is near.  Repent and believe the good news!” ~ Mark 1:15
