Jesus said, “I am the door; if anyone enters through Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.” (John 10:9)

I am the Good Shepherd leading the way and making you to lie down in green pastures. Enter through Me and walk through the first door, Love. As you walk through, receive My redeeming blood. I guide you and lead you and counsel you with My loving eye upon you as you trust in Me and walk through Me. Continue being guided into all truth as you are lead through the second door, Joy. I welcome you with open arms as you enter into the fullness of My joy. As you walk, My joy is being made complete in you! Enter through the third door, Peace. I, the Prince of Peace await you as you enter into My rest. My yoke is easy and My burden is light. The peace I give is not as the world gives, but surpasses all human understanding. Now you are floating through the fourth door, Patience. You have received the patience of spirit and learned to resist the haughtiness of spirit. Pass through and enter into the fifth door, Kindness. With each door you pass through, you are strengthened in your inner man as you grow and learn to embrace those who are weaker in their faith. You are kind to all and tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you. Keep going and enter into the sixth door, Goodness. You are shining bright as you walk in all goodness and righteousness and truth. Leap through the seventh door, Faithfulness. You are being steadied and proven through just as gold is purified. Persevere and continue the race as you run through the eighth door, Gentleness. Your words are gentle and they turn away anger. There is no stopping you now! Come on through, the ninth door, Self-Control. You’ve chosen life over death and proceeded to walk on the path of life. Well done good and faithful servant!
