DEAD AS A DOOR NAIL




(Unquestionably dead, used for both inanimate objects and once living beings.)

This is one of the common phases that I grew up with. From my earliest memories I heard it used to refer to something that had no life left in it.

With Christmas approaching, our minds are focused upon the birth of Christ but there was a time some thirty odd years later when a group of faithful believers gathered around a place of crucifixion where he had been put to death. 

Sorrowfully they took him down and buried him in a crypt as reason told them that; “He was dead as a doornail.”

After the birth and death of Jesus the next event most notable event is the resurrection of Christ and his appearances to his disciples, which was followed by his ascension and seating at the right hand of the Father.

While each phase of Christ’s human life is important our focus must now center upon the fact he is our advocate before the Father.

1Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,

 Our very existence depends upon His present ministry on our behalf. This process must be played out until Christ’s return. How alive is Christ? He is alive as you are and more so, for he dies no more.

Colossians 1:17 He existed before anything else and he holds all creation together.

John 1:3 All things came into existence through him, and without him nothing was.

The quality of our relationship with GOD is dependent upon acceptance of the full spectrum of the works of Christ and the fact that this GOD MAN is your representative in heaven.

Something that we need/must be aware of every day is that Christ is alive. The awareness of this fact and the presence of the Holy Spirit will help keep us on the straight and narrow.

Because of the fact that He is alive we can say with the Psalmist; “Yes even though I have to go through a valley of death you art with me and you will comfort me.”

He is alive eternally.
