Thoughts of a Laborer 5-10-13
Yes! Christianity is an “Exclusive Club”. It excludes only those who choose not to be a part of it. A person must make a choice to come in. You will not be forced.
There is one Bouncer at the door, Who is the Door, and His name is Jesus Christ. He shed His Blood for you, so that you could be a part of the Club. The Key to the door is a gift that must simply be received by saying “Yes” to His sacrifice. Why is this necessary to enter into the Club? Because the Owner of the Club is Almighty and Just and Pure, therefore only purity is allowed inside. We frail and impure humans can only be made pure by the blood of the Lord Jesus. His Blood was shed for this particular reason, that we might enter the club and be one with the Father once again as it was in the beginning. Almighty God does not force His way. He leaves His “Might” at the door when He comes to us and whispers His Love into our ears hoping that we will respond to His love with a “Yes”. He is a Loving Father wanting the best for us but allowing us to make our own choices. He gives us every opportunity to become one with Him even though some of us choose to stay apart from Him. The Interior of the Club is beautiful, filled with Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self Control.
All are welcome. But, there is only one Door; Jesus!
