One Real Good Door

Actually, when the weather is great it is a lot of fun to ride around with the doors off.  I remember riding in a military jeep back in Vietnam with no top or doors.  I guess it was all about an easy in or easy out depending on the immediate situation.  I’m sure there a few guys out there who could tell us stories about jeeps without doors.   

There are so many things that need to be done next that it freaks me out to look at the old truck.   I was sitting in it the other day pondering what I should do… next!  As I sat in the driver’s seat, leaning back with my hands on the old cracked steering wheel like a boy without a license, I just wondered.  No doors!  I guess I could fix the doors.  No matter how much fun it would be to go door-less, when the weather turns cold and evil, it is a great thing to have doors and to be on the inside of them.  Have you ever thought about how many times in just one day an average person might move through a doorway?  Why doors?   Are they trying to keep us in or keep us out?   They offer ingress, egress, safety, security, protection, and passage.  I am looking forward to the day when One will say, “Get in, shut the door, buckle up, hang on, we are going for the ride of your life!” 

I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.                                                                                           John 10:9 (KJV)
