Message of the Day: Jesus is the Door By which We Can Enter and Experience God.

Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. I am the door. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.” (John 10:7, 9 NKJV)

This is one of the clashes between Jesus and the Pharisees. It began after the healing of the blind man. Jesus was trying to show the contrast in their treatment of the blind man with his through the story of the good shepherd. The Pharisees acted like robbers, but Jesus acted like a good shepherd. As a result the man dumped them, turned to Jesus, acknowledged him as the shepherd-savior and gladly followed him. (John 10: 1-6)

To strengthen his claim, Jesus likened himself to a door, by which people could enter and experience God, find life, freedom, protection, and provision, a stark contrast with the Pharisees’ act of exploiting and oppressing people instead of leading them to God.(John 10: 7-10)
