Someone’s Knocking at the Door

The Bible uses the example of dark and light to symbolize the ways of God (light) and the ways of evil (dark). Darkness contributes to our lost-ness, and confusion. Light allows us to see things: clearly, distinctly, openly, truthfully, and eternally.
Jesus said John 8:12; ” I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness.”
When my kids were little we always made sure we had “night lights” on so they wouldn’t stumble if they awoke in the dark. If we are Christ followers we can always have His light reflected in us. It can keep us and others from falling.
The way, truth, and light is how Jesus describes Himself on the night of betrayal. This gives all of humanity clear directions on the way to God. He is truth. The Light that comes from Him illuminates and clarifies how we can be in the right relation with God. Jesus said in John 10:9, “I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved.” We are given the opportunity to enter through this gate into the kingdom of God!

The Christian faith is much easier to understand than any other religion. We all have sinned and separated ourselves from the Lord, but God loves us enough that we can be forgiven.
Jesus, the Way, provides the only entry door to Heaven. We just have to open it. He’s knocking.
Amen?
