Chapter 3 – IN CONCLUSION
INTRODUCTION TO THE MESSAGE
“I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall GO IN AND OUT, and ﬁnd pasture” (John 10:9).
A great battle was impending. The commander was inspecting his troops. Turning from a mass of undisciplined, inexperienced men before him, he said to one of his generals: “These men I know nothing about.” Then, as his eye ran over a body of men who had been with him for a short time and knew something of march, bivouac, and battleﬁeld, he said: “These men I think I can trust.” Finally he turned to a division of troops who had been with him in all of his campaigns. They were the veterans of his army. They had been baptized in blood and ﬁre in many a ﬁerce and deadly struggle. As they stood before him with set lips and stern countenances, ready, and waiting for the onset of the coming battle, the great commander turned from them with a heart pulsing with pride and conﬁdence, and said quietly to his ofﬁcers: “These men I know I can trust.” How shall we become men and women whom God can trust? How shall we shun the calamity of a continuous spiritual babehood, stunted in growth and blighted in fruitage? How shall we come to full grown manhood in Christ Jesus? How shalI we grow strong and “ﬁnd pasture?” Jesus Christ answers these vital questions with His usual matchless simplicity and searchingness in the tenth chapter of John’s gospel. “By Me,” He says, “if any man enter in he shall be saved.” He tells how to escape spiritual dwarfage. He teaches us how to feed, how to ﬁnd pasture, in these striking words:
“He shall Go IN and OUT and ﬁnd pasture.” The believer is a priest of God. As the priest goes in to God, and goes out to men so must it be with the believer. He must go in to commune: he must go out to serve. He must go in, in faith: he must go out in love. He must go in to get from God: he must go out to give to men. He must go in for visions: he must go out for tasks. He must go in for life: he must go out to bear fruit. He must go in to wait on God: he must go out to work for men. He must go in to listen: he must go out to speak. This is his balanced life – to go in and to go out. And as he does so, Christ says, he “ﬁnds pasture,” he feeds and learns the secret of growth and gain in the Christian life. Let us think awhile of him in this relation God-ward, in his life of going-in. And let us note ﬁrst, that-
