Five Minutes with God

Five Minutes with God is a distinct and exciting approach to daily Bible devotionals. Instead of a lofty goal of going through the entire Bible—or even the New Testament—in one year, Five Minutes with God focuses on shorter passages so that the reader can absorb more of the text and apply it to everyday life. This daily podcast will step you through the Gospel accounts of the life of Christ. Each day’s podcast also ends with a thought for further reflection and a call to prayer. By reading, reflecting, and praying, Five Minutes with God will help you come to know Him, love Him, and follow Him like never before.

So Jesus again said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. All who came before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them. I am the door. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved and will go in and out and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.

In this “I am” statement, Jesus describes Himself as the door of the sheep. He is the means of entrance to the Father. As He will later say, “No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6). He contrasts Himself to those who’ve come before Him, calling them thieves and robbers. Some have thought Him to be referring to “false messiahs,” those who have come before Him claiming to be the promised savior. Others have understood Him to be referring to many of the Jewish leaders of the day who, while playing the part of religious leader, had pursued only their own interests. Whoever they may have been, these “thieves and robbers” had only sought to lead people away from God and rob them of their salvation. But Jesus came to give life. He came to open the door to God and salvation for any who would enter it. And 2,000 years later, He continues to be that open door. He is still the only way to God and to heaven, and He still stands waiting to lead His sheep into eternity.

Why is Jesus the only way to God?
