See that Open Door

“These things says He who is holy, He who is true, He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens:”

“I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My Word, and have not denied My name.” (Rev. 3:7-8)

This is the reality of what Jesus Christ has done for each of us. Before us, He has set an open door. To each of us is given that ultimate opportunity – a choice, if you will. When there has been placed this kind of open door before us, we must choose to run through it! It is our hope of increased strength. It is our hope of greater impact and reaching our highest goal… a destiny of Kingdom significance. And no one can close the door that God has opened for us. No one except ourselves… when we choose not to see it.

Stating the Obvious:

We must see the opportunity. It is there, before our very eyes more often than we acknowledge. And if we put that “little strength” we have into action… there is no telling what God will do. If we use our strength to live for Him, to keep His Word and refuse to deny Him; no matter how much the world obstructs our view, we will see breakthrough! We can go through it to a brighter future.

Do Not Stand in Unbelief!

Nazareth embraced a spiritual blindness that caused them to become offended when they saw the open door. Do you doubt that Jesus has set before you the open door? If so, then read Luke 4:16-22 very carefully. What do you hear inside your heart when you read this? It reveals what you can see!

“So He came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up. And, as his custom was, He went into the synagogue on the Sabbath Day and stood up to read. And He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written, The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He has anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord. Then He closed the book and gave it back to the attendant, and sat down. And the eyes of all who were in the synagogue were fixed on Him. And He began to say to them, Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing. So all bore witness of Him and marveled at the gracious words which proceeded out of His mouth. And they said, Is not this Joseph’s son?”

No – this is our Open Door!
