The Right Door

John 14:6-7 (NIV) Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really knew me, you would know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him."

Matthew 7:13-14 (NIV) "Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

Greetings from Sunny Florida!

This morning my husband & I went downstairs to get some breakfast. We decided to bring my son some breakfast since he was sleeping late.

So...we go upstairs...we put our key in but the door is not opening...we try again and again and a man and a woman answer and said..."yes, can I help you". Well immediately I got a pretty scary feeling that something was not right.

My husband is right next to me and we look at each other and said..."oh, we must have the wrong door". But the door did say room Number 403....but I second guessed myself and said...perhaps its 304 and we made a mistake. But all the while I am thinking who are these people...that's my was a weird...almost horror like feeling....I'm thinking...someone is in my room and my son is in there. So I tell my husband let me go to the floor below and you stay here. 

So I go downstairs and sure enough a lady answers the I am afraid!!! I yell at my husband from the floor below---THAT'S OUR ROOM-- Ok...I pictured myself and my husband running through the door to rescue my son..... So as I am ready to go upstairs husband says "where is our car"? Should it not be out front? see we were at the right door but the wrong building. Well the scary feeling left and now I felt silly.....but reminded.... Sometimes at one time or another we all stand at a "door" a "road" thinking it’s the right one...we are even convinced of it....but the Lord, the Creator has made it very clear...he does not want us to be deceived.... Read what the Word of God says...

Make sure you are at the right door...then walk in and spend eternity with the Master!

God bless you!~Liz
