But if your servant says to you, ‘I do not want to leave you’… take an awl and push it through his earlobe into the door, and he will become your servant for life.
A doorway is a portal from one place to another. Any servant could choose to enter voluntarily into a lifetime of service to his master. Jesus says to us, ‘I am the door’ (Jn.10:9) and we too have passed willingly through this doorway into a new life with our Master.
He promises us salvation, freedom and pasture.
We owe him our wholehearted service.
