“I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven; whatever doors you lock on earth shall be locked in heaven; and whatever doors you open on earth shall be open in heaven!” – Matthew 16:19 TLB
We all, on occasion, lose our keys….When it happens, it’s not only frustrating, but can cause us to panic as we frantically dig through a bag or a drawer, or rush to retrace our steps.
It can be disorienting when we reach for that key and its not there.
Although you have been given the keys to the Kingdom of God—keys that will unlock whatever door you need opened—sometimes you misplace them, or simply need reminding where and what they are. And there is nothing more vital to living your best life than access to those keys.
The message most needed in the world today is the message of the Kingdom of God.
In Matthew 24:14, Jesus told His disciples, “The Good News about the Kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world, so that all nations will hear it, and then, finally, the end will come” (TLB).
The message of the Kingdom is what the Gospel is all about…
…and the message of the Gospel is all about living more empowered lives.
To all who hear and heed it, the Gospel imparts..
