An explanation of how salvation is only through Christ, based on the verse "I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved."

FULL TEXT UNFORMATTED BELOW


HOW LOVELY TO NOTE that when the Lord Jesus speaks of Himself, He uses no lofty imagery; rather He speaks of Himself in comparison to everyday things, so that we have no difficulty in grasping the meaning of His message. In John's Gospel, chapter 4, He speaks of Himself as Water, in chapter 6 as Bread, and here as the Door. The illustration is simple. The Lord is saying that, just as you pass through a door to enter a building, so by faith in Christ Jesus you can enter into God's salvation. Perhaps the Lord has spoken of Himself in this way in order that it may often come to our attention! When you enter and leave your own house, you use a door. As you enter a car, you use its door. You pass through a door as you enter a store. Almost everywhere, doors meet your gaze. Our Lord seems to say to you, "I will meet you wherever you are, and I would like you to be reminded wherever you go that I am the door by which you can be saved." GOD'S SALVATION IS A PERSON Now, I would like you to notice how particular the Lord is in His statement regarding the way of salvation. He does not say, "The church is the door," neither does He say, "The sacraments are the door," nor, "Baptism is the door." Rather, He points to Himself and says, "I am the door." Peter affirms this truth by saying, "Neither is there salvation in any other" (Acts 4v12). Paul declares, "that in all things He (Christ) might have the preeminence" (Colossians 1v18). Salvation is found only in the person of our Lord Jesus Christ, for He said, "I am the door." A POSSIBLE SALVATION The Lord declares, "by Me if ANY MAN enter in, he shall be saved." How wonderful! Regardless of their colour or condition, the Lord invites all. I remember preaching in a mountain village; a woman who attended those meetings was yearning for God's salvation. However, the devil had convinced her that her life had been too sinful for God to receive her. One night as we spoke of Paul's words, "This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief" (1Timothy 1v15), she saw for the first time that if Christ Jesus could save Paul, the chief of sinners, He was willing and able to save her, too! She entered in and was saved! The Lord "is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that ANY should perish, but that ALL should come to repentance" (2Peter 3v9). The blood of Christ can cleanse any sin (1John 1v7). Have you been made wretched through sin? Listen, dear friend, the Saviour beckons you, "if ANY man enter in, he shall be saved." A PRESENT SALVATION Did you ever hear a person say, "You can't know in this life. You have to wait for the judgment to find out where you will be"? Such thinking is "ecclesiastical rubbish" for I search in vain to find such a theory in the Bible. In fact, the Bible tells us just the opposite! "He shall be saved," says the Lord. It doesn't say that he might be, or can hope to be, but, "he SHALL be saved." When? The answer is simple. The very moment he enters the Door, he is saved. When did you receive Christ by entering the Door? When Zacchaeus received the Saviour, the Lord assured him, "THIS DAY is salvation come to this house"(Luke 19v9). Salvation is not obtainable after death. "Now is the day of salvation" (2Corinthians 6v2). A PRECIOUS SALVATION The Hope Diamond is one of the world's most precious gems, yet 10,000 of them couldn't purchase God's salvation. But, thank God, the cost was met by a Person, the Lord Jesus Christ. "I am the good Shepherd: the good Shepherd giveth His life for the sheep" (John 10v11). We are "not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold... But with the precious blood of Christ" (1Peter 1v18,19). Not only is salvation precious because of the price paid to procure it, but also because of its delivering power. Hell awaits the sinner, but God cries, "Deliver him from going down to the pit: I have found a ransom" (Job 33v24). Faith in Christ saves the soul from hell, judgment, and eternal punishment in the lake of fire. How comforting His words are to those who enter in - "he shall be saved." A PERMANENT SALVATION When the Lord saves a soul, He does a perfect work. Did you ever observe sheep and a shepherd? I have, and one thing I've noticed is that it is always the shepherd who holds the sheep, and never the sheep who holds on to the shepherd. Similarly, in salvation, I'm not holding on to the Shepherd; but thank God, the Shepherd is holding on to me! He has put me on His shoulders, so I'm safe and secure (Luke 15v5)! If you enter the Door, He will assure you with this wonderful fact, "I give unto them eternal life; and they shall NEVER perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand" (John 10v28). My friend, the Saviour calls; will you come? Receive Him now and experience His words, "by Me if any man enter in, he shall be saved." "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me." (John 14v6)
