Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
Consider the cross of Christ. There, we find the border of salvation. There, Jesus accomplished the work that would save us from a life of sin and redeem us to the abundant life He died to make possible. This border was built by the hand of Almighty God through the sacrifice of His only begotten Son when He humbled Himself and went to a place called Calvary.
There, He won an absolute and complete victory over every power, every principality, every force of darkness, over death, hell and the grave. The cross is a border of triumph!
The cross is not a border to exclude or prohibit; it was not built to keep out anyone who might approach. God provided it as a free gift to all people of all cultures and of all generations. The Holy Spirit calls, “Come!” to “whosoever will” (Revelation 22:17).
This border is open to set people free, to offer asylum from the attacks against the heart, from the suffering and torment of this world, from the wiles of Satan, and the temptations of the flesh. To anyone who wants to immigrate from the guilt and shame of their past, the border is open. To those who want to leave behind the bondage and cross over to the liberty that only Christ can give, the border is open.
The best news about this border is that, though millions have flooded through the open Door that is Christ Jesus, room abounds for more.
This point of access is enforced by the Word of God. Entry is not allowed by any other means. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6). Come, step through the Door, inside the border, and find a life overflowing with blessing — both now and forevermore.
