You’re the Locksmith


Mathew 16:19

And I will give you the keys of 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."

Keys, keys, keys, we all have so many of them. Keys to our cars, the front door, the shop, the bike lock, the office, and don’t forget the post office box. Some keys let us in for shelter, another for transportation, and one opens you up to new information, possibly revealing mysteries. We can take a key and lock something, or we can loose something; the decision is yours.

Peter never held the keys in the physical world, but we see when he first used them. In Acts chapter 2, seven weeks after the resurrection of Jesus, the Holy Spirit makes His triumphal entry. Before the day of Pentecost, the Holy Spirit was rare. He was more individualized for prophets and kings, priests, and, sometimes, I think, governmental. After the 120 people in the upper room received the Holy Spirit, Peter and the other eleven apostles went outside the walls and kept praying in tongues. Suddenly! Peter uses his Key, unlocks the Holy Spirit, and boldly gives his first sermon in front of a huge crowd; here is the outcome,

Act 2:41 And those who believed Peter were baptized—about three thousand in all!

Pretty good for Peter's first sermon. But wait, there’s more! When Peter unlocked the Holy Spirit, everyone that received the Holy Spirit now had the benefit of the keys. So, the question is, what is the Key? How would I use the Key? The Key is so simple most of us miss it, we tend to leave it alone, and we don’t want to bother the Lord with the Key. Please read this next bible verse spoken by Jesus:

John 14:14 Yes, ask anything, using my name, and I will do it!

The Key is the name of Jesus.
