Advent Day 5

December 05, 2023

Dec. 5

Jesus said, “I am the door: by Me if any man enters in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.” John 10:9

Believer, beware. It’s possible to get so caught up doing Christmas that we resort to coasting on the leftovers of our last devotional or worship service and whether that be a conscious decision or an or unintentional one, we’ll be weaker for it.

Have you settled somewhere between coming to Jesus for eternal life and continuing to come to Him for abundant life? You’re not alone, and that’s not a good thing. I don’t know what’s more tragic, that this great Door of nourishment and fellowship is undervalued and neglected by unbelievers, or by believers! Believers neglecting the Door, Shellie? Yes. Our dry faith rats us out, and the Word testifies to our malnutrition.

Our invitation is to come to Jesus for eternal life, and our challenge is to keep coming to Him for abundant life. Join me and run for the Door!
