THEME: I AM
“I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.”
-During the ancient times, shepherds would go out from village during the day to graze the sheep on the hill side & kept them in a common area where they hired door keepers to ensure they remained secure. When it was summer time, shepherds would go out further in the wilderness in search of pasture & would build an enclosure for the sheep without placing a door. At night the shepherd would lie at the door to offer security for the sheep by ensuring that no sheep would go out & no predator would come in. In this picture, Jesus is portrayed as both the Shepherd of the sheep & the door to the sheep-fold. Jesus is the Door through Whom His sheep pass through & share riches of His glory. He provides salvation for those who go through Him, safety & grace in protection, good health, wealth, fruit, gifts, talents, wisdom, sustenance & abundant life through His rich pasture. Abundant life implies being reconciled to God through faith, living in His grace & having hope of spending eternity in His presence for He is the only way to the Father.
Our Father who at in heaven; hallowed be Your name; Your Kingdom come; Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread & forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lead us not into temptations but deliver us from evil; for thine is the Kingdom the power & the glory; forever & ever. Amen
