The White Door
“I’d repaint the interior doors white,” the realtor suggested. We took her advice. Once the faded wooden doors were painted, they looked much brighter and updated the house.
When we found our new home, I was thrilled to find white interior doors. The first night a hallway light burned out. As I searched for a bulb in the darkness, I could see where I was going because of the white doors.
According to our friend who is an interior designer, white is not considered a color. Yet, she said she had to take an entire course to learn about its hues and subtleties. Even if it’s not considered a color, I’ve always loved the brightness and “light” of white.
Light. We couldn’t survive without it. God created it so we can live and thrive—and not exist in darkness.
I’ve always loved how the light of day streams through the double white doors in our home. The streams of light remind me of the rays of light that are sometimes displayed in a grand array from the clouds. I like to think of it as a glimpse of what the heavenly realm--God's Kingdom--must look like.
We don’t know what the entrance to heaven will look like; however, Revelations 21:21 speaks of twelve gates made from pearl. Other examples of Scripture mentioning the gate are found in Matthew 7:13-14, Genesis 28:16-17, and Revelations 21:25.
Whatever the appearance, I am certain it will be ten-fold times more splendid than anything we could conceive of on this earthly plane. In heaven, we will be surrounded by indescribable beauty, where we will bask in God’s love—and light—for eternity.
And God said, ‘Let there be light,’ and there was light.” – Genesis 1:3
For descriptions of heaven, see John 14:2-3; Hebrews 12:22-23, and verses from Revelations: 7:9-10; 7:15-17; 11:9; 19:11-14; 21:9-11; 21:21; 22:2; and 22:4-5.
