We all know what keys are for. They unlock what was locked, open what was closed. The word key can also mean a solution, the answer to a problem. Some years ago, the Lord gave me a picture whilst I was praying. I saw Jesus standing before me in the form of a key standing upright. It puzzled me at the time and I filed it away and forgot it. But occasionally I have thought about it, and what God may have been saying to me.
On reflection, the picture of a key describes Jesus perfectly! Into a lost and trapped world Jesus was sent to unlock us, set us free from the bondage of sin, and to be the solution to our problems and struggles, John 3:16. Jesus is the key to the code of eternal life and salvation. The door now stands before us unlocked and all we have to do is to believe and push it open to discover the life he has for us on the other side. But it is up to us to open it. In Revelation, Jesus calls us to open the door to let him in. He does not force his way into our lives, but leaves the choice to us. Choose life, John 14:6 and open up that door today, Deut. 30:19. You won't regret it!
