God's Love

 

  "For when for the time ye ought to be teachers,
ye have need that one teach you again
which be the first principles of the oracles of God;
and are become such as have need of milk,
and not of strong meat."
Hebrews 5:12
 
Doors Leading Nowhere
 
    Have you ever been caught in a revolving door, going 'round and 'round until you finally manage to get out? Well, some people are like that. They have no direction as to where they are going.
 
    Besides its common use as the entrance to a home or building, this word is used metaphorically as the entrance to anything. Jesus said that He is the door, the entrance, into the kingdom (John 10:7-9). The door of faith is the opportunity of belief offered to the Gentiles in Acts 14:27 also. Elsewhere, it means opportunity.
 
    Paul refers to a great door opening to him in 2Corinthians 2:13. And Revelation 4:1 says, ".....I looked, and, behold, a door was opened......" Do we, God's redeemed, have the ability to see the open doors? And if so, do we go in and avail ourselves of the opportunities that await us?
 
    Jude talks about people who have no direction, driven about by winds first one way then another. This accomplishes nothing. Ephesians 4 speaks of being carried about by every wind, again depicting no direction.
 
    Some Christians show no more direction after being saved for thirty or forty years, than they did when they first obeyed. They are caught in a door going nowhere. They went through it, and stopped! They are still babes in Christ after all these years. Paul relates to this when he says, "By reason of time you ought to be teachers."
 
    All of God's redeemed, must try to mature and start thinking about more than just the basic things we were taught about Christ. Christians who live on milk are like babies..............we need solid food (strong meat) to mature and be trained in the way to go.
Let's get through those doors and grow up now.
God is willing to guide you if you will make yourself able.
