12LHCD7-4 - Kyle Nees - THE OPEN DOOR - Donation $4.00 - Jesus is the door, the portal - if you try to come any other way you miss the point of the door, the fullness, the glory - you miss all that He wants to give to you. Open your heart to receive the fullness. Kyle uses an illustration of a red bird that was pecking against the glass windows in their gathering place to bring home some poignant truths. The bird was fighting what he thought to be his enemies, when in essence he was fighting with himself. We waste a lot of time and energy trying to do things our way, and still the only open door is to do things His way. Jesus cures the blindness caused by our own reflection. When you are seeing too much of your own reflection, you will be fighting against yourself and never really come to the door. The bird's erratic behavior kept him from the presence of what was in the building. Sometimes our actions, our thoughts, what we are preoccupied with keep us from going through the door. We can be right there and not even see that all we need to do is step through the door and step into the Glory. We want His image but can't get past our own reflection and the blindness it produces. Prayer for surrender to the yoke of Jesus and the anointing concludes this message.
