Sometime ago my wife needed to pick up a few items at our local grocery store. I told her that I would stay in our van with our girls. I dropped her off at the door and as she walked towards the door, it automatically opened, allowing her to go in. I found an empty parking spot right out front and waited for a few minutes. As I was waiting, I watched as an older lady walked toward the door. As she got closer to the door, it automatically opened for her. Moments later, a young man walked toward the door, and yes, you guessed it, it automatically opened for him too. Rich and poor, old and young, the door opened for everyone. I waited around ten minutes and probably 50 people walked towards the door, and it opened for all of them. I realize that this is a no-brainer, but as my family and I drove away from the grocery store, I thought, that door is a whosoever door. Whoever went toward the door, it opened for everyone.
This issue of the Standard is about the doors of opportunity that God opens for us. Whether it is internationally, in our town, or next door, there are doors of opportunity that are open to share the Gospel! In case you haven’t noticed, the world that you and I live in desperately needs Jesus. We need people who are tired of the states quo, to be willing to go through open doors wherever God may lead us. Internationally, in our community, or even next door. If we are followers of Christ, then there are opportunities everywhere to share the Gospel. As you read the excellent articles in this issue, ask God what doors He would have you walk through. John 3:16 says “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Whosoever. When the whosever walks through the doors, may we be ready and willing to help lead them to Jesus.
