Doors are everyday objects that we use. You use a door to keep unwanted persons out of your house, but doors are also seen as opportunities in our lives that we need to walk through.
Ralph Waldo Emerson said God enters by a private door into every individual. But do you know that God also has a door?
An interesting story is told of a mother whose daughter ran away from her, and lived a life of sin. For a long time no one could tell where she was. Yet that daughter came back and was reclaimed. She became a true penitent. She was taught to mourn for sin. She turned to Christ and believed in Him. Old things passed away, and all things became new. Her mother was asked one day to tell what she had done to bring her daughter back. What means had she used? What steps had she taken? Her reply was a very striking one. She said, "I prayed for her night and day." But that was not all. She went on to say, "I never went to bed at night without leaving my front door unlocked. I thought if my daughter came back some night when I was in bed, she should never be able to say that she found the door shut. She should never be able to say that she came to her mother's home - but could not get in." And so it turned out. Her daughter came back one night, and tried the door, and found the door open, and at once came in, to go out and sin no more. That open door was the saving of her soul.
Just like this mother, God’s door is an open door. His door is open to each and every person. No matter who you are, where you have been. His door is open for you!
You must however realize that you have to make a choice to walk through His door. He will never force you to come into His presence. He will just keep on inviting you and when you accept, His door will always be open to you!
