There is just one door to God. Just one door to heaven. It should be locked, right?
When you think of how sinful we human beings are… When you look around at all the corruption in our world… When you’re honest about all the evil in your own heart… That door to God and heaven should be locked tight.
But it’s not. It’s open to you and to me.
Because here’s Jesus’ promise: “I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture” (John 10:9).
Isn’t that amazing? The gate to heaven is open to all who believe and trust in Jesus’ perfection for us. It’s open because the blood of Jesus paid for all of our sins and won for us eternal life.
Jesus is the gate; whoever enters through him will be saved!
