sermonette: The Door of the Sheep
Purposes of a Door
Richard T. Ritenbaugh
Given 15-Dec-07; Sermon #859s; 18 minutes
Richard Ritenbaugh, reflecting on the plainness and straightforwardness of the door imagery in John 10:17, affirms that Jesus Christ, as the door to the sheepfold, fulfills the following functions: (1) Provides access to salvation, (2) provides protection, keeping predators out, (3) provides a boundary separating us from the world, (4) provides a venue for fellowship with others of the same mind, and (5) provides a means to go in and out, living righteously as examples to the world.
