I'll Give You the keys...

It's what Jesus told Peter when Peter realized who Jesus was. He said "I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven". Now that's a set of keys that we would not lose! Peter had a revelation from God and that put him in position for an all access pass to everything God had prepared in advance for him.
You don't give your keys to someone you don't know. If we don't KNOW Christ, we have no keys. That means our access is limited. It means our power to lock out harmful influences is diminished. You'll find this scripture in Matthew 16. And once you read it, you will probably realize that you need those keys. And to get them you have to KNOW Him.
It's hard to imagine that there are people who are doing things in the name of the Lord that the Lord doesn't really KNOW. Yet that is what Jesus said in Matthew 7. They will even cast out devils and prophesy in His name!
So how can we make certain that we know Him...I mean really KNOW Him? We pursue a genuine relationship with Him. We spend time with Him. We talk to Him.
He knew you before you were born. He knew what you would become and that you would be where you are today. And He has a wonderful plan to make all that you do prosper. Isn't it time you got to KNOW Him?
