An Open Door
Behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it (Rev. 3:8).
Passover is a time of shutting ourselves up to pray to remind us of God's goodness. He sent His Son to be our Passover Lamb, the One whose blood cleanses us from every stain. On the night before the Israelites left Egypt's land, Moses admonished them to stay in their homes.
The death angel would pass over their houses and when he saw the blood of the lamb on their doorposts.
Doors shut to protect us and open to give us opportunities to partake of new things freely. A door is a passageway from one place to another. If you walk through one that leads to sin, indeed, your life will be the worst for it. But if you walk through a door of hope and faith, you will transform and discover the liberty that only the Lord can only give you.
Choose wisely the door you walk through. Christ now is doing a new thing in your life. Do you see it, and are you willing to enjoy it by leaving the past behind? We are all on earth for such a short time. We must take every opportunity that God gives us to transform and walk in the newness of life.
To the disciples in the church of Philadelphia, Jesus identifies himself as the Holy One who opens doors that no one can shut and shuts doors that no one can open. He tells them, "I have set before you an open door, which no one can shut." Look for your open door this season, and do not be afraid to walk through it. Though it will bring change in your life, blessings are sure to follow.
