John 10:7 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.
What contrast could be greater than that between the "I-AM" and this title, "Door of the Sheep"? Here our Lord paints a picture and uses an allegory into which sheep, sheepfold and shepherd are introduced, He, Himself, claiming a particular position, ""The Door of the sheep". He is the Door by which entrance is gained into Heaven. "By Me if any man enter in, he shall be saved!" Put your hand upon the Door --- Jesus Christ on the cross --- and enter the fold. There is safety. There is liberty. There is food for the sheep, and water and rest. Free from Satan's snare, filled with joy and peace, what more could we ask or desire?
Dear Lord, shepherd us today in Thine own arms. Amen.
