Chester loves waiting at the threshold of our front door, for the possibilities it affords:
A chance to bark at something, the ability to warm himself on sunny days or the possibility that someone will take him for a walk.
I like walking across the threshold of a church door, because of the opportunities it brings:
A chance to fellowship with other believers, an avenue to show my love for God through worship and an opportunity to grow in my relationship with Him.
Jesus rejoiced crossing back over the threshold of the grave, by rising from the dead, knowing the accessibility to life it would offer us:
A chance for a brand new life through a restored relationship with God, the privilege of a Spirit-filled life through unrestricted admittance to His presence and the accessibility of eternal life through accepting Christ’s sacrifice for our sins.
Through Jesus, we can cross over the threshold from death to life.
“Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life.”
