There are many doors open to each one of us today. Open doors of service are available in every avenue of our life, but we often miss these opportunities because we do not discern them. These doors are the most precious things in our lives. We must step through with a push from our free volition.
Jesus said, “I am the door of the sheep” (John 10:7). One day, we will all stand before Jesus, and He will judge us according to how we responded to grace, the Word of God, and these open doors. He will give rewards to those who gave cups of cold water in His name (2).
Malachi 3:16 says that “a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord, and they that thought upon His name.” The Scriptures teach that we have no idea what the Lord has prepared for us. “Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him”: (I Corinthians 2:9).
Let us say “No!” to rebellion, the pleasures of this life, worldliness, lust, etc. Let us say “Yes!” to the doors of godliness, prayer, missions, studying the Word, and loving the brethren. Keep on choosing, with conviction, all of these doors that are available to you today. You will find that Jesus Himself is the one who opened them for you.
