Matthew 16:19 “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.”
The CHRISTmas Key!
Those blinded saw by hearing first;
those dark made light…while listening.
As Mary sat at JESUS’ feet so gained she sight while sitting.
What glorious views! What visions — grand — revealing GOD to sinners!
So speak aloud for all to feel HIS healing words within us!
Then lame shall walk and blind will gaze upon their LORD unhindered…
as the mute, no longer silent, start HIS praise through zealous whispers!
So reach out to all like beacons preaching all the Light of JESUS…
for our Healing gift is CHRIST
WHOSE grace gave Life’s eternal freedoms!
Thus rejoice in HIS unfailing love, unwrapped to share since CHRISTmas!
and give the Lost the greatest gift of all…which is our LORD’s forgiveness!
As HIServant sharing the unmerited forgiveness HE poured out for us,
Devotional: The Key to Eternal Life and Happiness isn’t in our hands but HIS. When HE drew us to HIMSELF and entered our hearts, our LORD and loving LOCKSMITH unlocked and forever removed those chains which weighed us down. No more despair, no more sadness!
Romans 15:13 “May the GOD of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the HOLY SPIRIT you may abound in hope.”
So today AND ALWAYS…gift the key of forgiveness, both your own and most importantly CHRIST’s…to all you see!
Matthew 16:19 then! “…and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” HE reminds us to loose the chains of the Lost on earth by using HIS key.
So let us daily free the captives around us with haste and great zeal!
Merry CHRISTmas! Amen and amen!
