The Jesus Portal

English Audio Version

Let’s start by defining portal.

Merriam-Webster says it’s a door or an entrance, especially one that is grand or imposing.

Then, Webster’s goes on to say it can be an approach to a bridge or a tunnel.

So, a portal guides us through a doorway to a distant place we cannot see.

Jesus is that for humanity. He is our guide, our approach to the perfection of an afterlife he offers everyone.

The book of Psalms gives us three encouraging depictions of our Jesus portal.

Our 1st Depiction:

Psalm 48:14 tells us we have a guide to our everlasting home.

“[For] this is God, our God forever and ever. He will guide us forever.”

Our 2nd Depiction:

Psalm 49:15 assures us the grave is not our destination.

“But God will ransom my soul from the power of Sheol, for he will receive me.”

Our 3rd Depiction:

Psalm 73:26 gives us confidence in the redeeming power of Jesus.

“My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.”

Jesus is the door, and we come to God through him. He is our portal to new life in God. Here’s how it works:

1. Accept that Jesus is the Son of God.

2. Choose to give Jesus control of your life.

3. Model your new life after Jesus in the Bible.

You can become a child of God today. You can walk through that door. Jesus welcomes you on the other side.

Life flows from God. When we choose to walk with him, he blesses us daily.

What we pack is what gives us power. Let's pack the power of God so that others may come to him in truth and in power.
