John 10:7, 9-10
“Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. 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.”
11 “I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth His life for the sheep.”
Christ is the Good Shepherd, the Shepherd who gives life to those who ask for it and follow Him.
When we enter into His Door we will be saved and find the good pasture, pasture that feeds our spirit with Truth from His Word.
We know in the symbolical sense this “thief” is Satan who is in fact the destroyer. Without Christ we will be destroyed as our sins cannot be forgiven (without Him). Seek Christ and seek Eternal Life, only Christ can save us and grant us the exclusive rights to His Kingdom.
