Illustration: Jesus the Door

In his Turning Point daily devotional for March 21, David Jeremiah writes: "When Lucy cracks open the wardrobe door in C.S. Lewis' The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, she symbolically encounters a spiritual world. Through that door, she meets the King of Beasts, Aslan, who Lewis uses to represent Jesus, the King of kings.

"Twice in the Book of Revelation, we are told the door of heaven opens. The first time it opens, the church is received into heaven at the rapture (Revelation 4:1). The second time the door opens, Christ and His church leave heaven and return to earth at the zenith of the Battle of Armageddon. Crowned with many crowns, Jesus returns as victor over sin, Satan and death. King of kings and Lord of lords (Revelation 19:11-16).

"As followers of Christ, we know the heavenly door that awaits the church, but do the lost souls around you know the door to salvation? Jesus said, "I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved..." (John 10:9). Make sure the door of your life is open to welcome all who seek the answers to eternal life (1 Peter 3:15)."
