On June 6, 1981, Doug Whitt and his bride, Sylvia, were escorted to their hotel's fancy bridal suite in the wee hours of the morning.  In the suite they saw a sofa, chairs, and table, but where was the bed?  Then they discovered the sofa was a hide-a-bed, with a lumpy mattress and sagging springs.  They spent a restless night and woke up in the morning with sore backs.

The new husband went to the hotel desk and gave the management a tongue-lashing. “Did you open the door in the room?” asked the clerk.  Doug went back to the room.  He opened the door they had thought was a closet.  There, complete with fruit baskets and chocolates, was a beautiful bedroom! 

A beautiful door in a honeymoon suite will not do any good unless it is opened and used.  Jesus Christ is the only door to salvation, security, and satisfaction.  But it will only do any good unless we use it – unless we open it!!  We don’t need a passport to enter this door.  We only need to be dumb sheep, willing to trust Christ and follow him.  Jesus simply says in John 10:9, “I am the door.”  Some people are spinning their wheels, trying to find God.  But they are wasting their time, because Jesus said I am the door.  May we remember that Jesus is the only door to peace with God – the door to salvation, security, and real satisfaction?
