How do you get into your locked house? You need a key! But not just any key, you need the RIGHT key. That key lets you into the safety and security of your own home. Without it, you have nothing. But that key does something else. Those who don’t have it, the thieves and the intruders, are kept out.
Jesus said, “I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”
He has given the church on earth the keys to our eternal home. The forgiveness of sins won by Jesus on the cross is shared to all who confess Jesus’ name and all He has done for us. Thanks be to God for Jesus’ forgiveness shared through His Church!
