Recently, a friend needed to get into our home while we were away. So…
Friend, the key to heaven is straight in front of you…JESUS!
What’s the key to life? Is it living adventurously? Is it filling your days with work, hobbies, family time, friends, making money, etc? Nope. The key to life is a full life with and in Jesus Christ.
Jesus is the key to heaven.
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6
He said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never live in darkness. They will have the light that gives life.” John 8:12
He personally carried our sins in his body on the cross so that we can be dead to sin and live for what is right. By his wounds you are healed. 1 Peter 2:24
The fact is, it was our suffering he took on himself; he bore our pain. But we thought that God was punishing him, that God was beating him for something he did. But he was being punished for what we did. He was crushed because of our guilt. He took the punishment we deserved, and this brought us peace. We were healed because of his pain. We had all wandered away like sheep. We had gone our own way. And yet the Lord put all our guilt on him. Isaiah 53:4-6
Friend, when Jesus, who died on the cross for you, becomes your personal Savior, you have found the key that unlocks it all. He’s right in front of you.
