Have you ever locked yourself out of your house, apartment or dorm room? What about your car? It’s a terrible feeling, right? You quickly go through the stages of grief: denial (my keys can’t be lost, or inside, or somewhere else), anger (no!), depression (ugh), bargaining (maybe I can find another way in!), then acceptance (nope, not getting in).
Has this last year felt like being locked out of every door you tried to open? Literally, not metaphorically?
Grocery stores, church, school, malls, government buildings, restaurants, stores, or anywhere you would
normally go to keep your life running smoothly? It’s been tough, but imagine being locked out of Heaven.
These past few weeks, we have had multiple GI mission teams in Guatemala, with more heading out to Ukraine and Costa Rica. Several are medical teams. The doors of our world’s countries and airlines are slowly beginning to reopen. We keep pushing on every door because the Great Commission is not canceled, and there are still many people living without Jesus. There are billions who have not even heard His Name once!
In John 10:9-10, Jesus said, “I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”
Your prayers and donations allow us to keep reaching the unreached, because people are lost. They are sick. They feel hopeless, and depressed, but we have the answer: Jesus, the door that leads to salvation.
