Doors may serve many purposes some good and some bad. We use doors on a daily basis throughout the entire world, for instance we use car doors, office doors, house doors and church doors.
Doors keep us out and doors may keep us in, doors also operate as sound barriers they keep sound in and they let sound out. Doors protect us from unwanted invaders, also doors left open will give access to invaders or enemies.
There's also many different types of doors, you have thin doors, and thick doors, doors made of steel and doors made of wood, also doors made of metal.
Doors seem to be very important tools in the lives of humans everywhere in the physical sense, but doors in the spiritual sense also play vital roles to us. As followers of Jesus Christ, we are continually opposed by the devil. The devil will try to use certain spiritual doors to gain access into our lives such as: bitterness, fear, unforgiveness, discouragement, worry, doubt, etc....
As followers of Jesus Christ, we must keep these doors closed, the devil(our adversary) roams around looking for open doors to hinder God's plan for our lives, so therefore we reverse the use of our spiritual doors. We must keep the doors of God open, doors of love, faith, forgiveness, hope, joy, and encouragement, by keeping the doors of God open we are protected from any entry of the devil.
As we mature in these doors of God, we become more Christ-like and we experience the victory of Jesus Christ in our lives. Are doors important? You better believe they are, not only to us, but also to God. Therefore, the way we use our doors is entirely up to us, whether physical or spiritual doors.
So, keep an eye on your doors!
