the open door

Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.  All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.  I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.  The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.  ~John 10:7-10

The Open Door

Access, dark to light
A door, open, inviting
New life born, transformed

Transformed, by His death
Designed, created, redeemed
To be me, set free

Set free, green pasture
Bread and wine; body and blood
Growing up in Him

In Him I am held
Joy and peace, all mine
Holy hope, wholly sustained
