In Christ, I Am Handed the keys to Heaven

Matthew 16:19 "and I will give you the keys to the Kingdom of Heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in Heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven."

This was a promise to Peter as Christ just called him the rock He was going to build His church upon. 

We too are given this promise in the fact that we were told about Jesus. His salvation, his entrance into the world to shed His blood for us is our key into the Kingdom of God. 

What a wonderful thing for God to hand over the keys to His kingdom to you and me. Very few people, even our closest relative or friend would hesitate to hand over the keys to us for their home to allow us to enter and stay. However God does it without hesitation. 

Problem is we are reluctant to quickly take those keys and use them properly. We take them alright but we treat the entrance way as something that is ever revolving so we can come and go as we please. 

This is no way to treat this privilege we are given when, in Christ, we are handed the keys to a wondrous place called Heaven. Instead let us go to the door of eternity and open it wide with the key of Jesus and enter to stay. 

Enter it to marvel at, to praise and glorify, to settle into for all eternity, to enjoy endlessly. 

Truly let us go to God and don't forget our Key!
