Heart of Jesus, house of God and gate of heaven, have mercy on us.

I am the door; if anyone enters by me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. (John 10:9)

My favorite recurring theme in the Gospel of John, are the seven great “I AM” sayings of Jesus. In this specific verse, “I am the door” is also translated as the gate.  The analogy Jesus is using is that He is the door/gate into heaven.  Are you standing before that door/gate, hoping to get in to heaven?
