Back in January Kari and I had the opportunity to volunteer at the Passion Conference in Atlanta. Passion is geared toward college students, and the conference seeks to help college students grow in passion about their faith. As volunteers, we each received a t-shirt that said “doorholder” across the front. The idea of a doorholder comes from Psalm 84 where the psalmist imagines the difference between being a doorholder in God’s house and being a tent-dweller with the wicked. A doorholder for a king is likely to only see the king once in a great while, and he simply stands ready to serve at any given moment. On the other hand, living with the wicked gives one complete and total access to a life indulgent in sin. Unfortunately, the deeper one delves into sin, the less satisfaction there is. So which is better? Clearly being a doorkeeper and experiencing the joy of serving the king. Which do you find satisfaction in? The one seems so exciting and promises daily indulgence, but somehow it always comes up short. The other may seem less exciting, but it delivers far more than what you might ever imagine.
