Another reason that Jesus came is to give us access into the Kingdom of Heaven.
As Jesus took the keys to hell and the grave.
Matthew 16:19 ESV
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.”
Now this is real access to heaven and all that heaven can offer us.
As we who receive Jesus as Lord and Savior, we got immediate access into the throne room of God.
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.
After being made righteous by faith we can come to the Father at any time.
Romans 5:1-2 NIV
Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God.
He calls us sons of faith.
As sons we are in the family of Heaven.
Given each a key to walk in and talk to our father any time we want.
2 Corinthians 6:17-18 NLT
Therefore, come out from among unbelievers, and separate yourselves from them, says the LORD. Don’t touch their filthy things, and I will welcome you.
And I will be your Father, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the LORD Almighty.”
As children when we enter the house of God we can go to the refrigerator and eat whatever we want.
We can take the boat out for a spin.
Lay back on the couch in the house of God.
Drive the Bentley.
Pull out a few vege’s from the garden
And if we want we can stay in the Big House for a few weeks and leave whenever we want.
We can ask our Father for some money and he will give it to us without asking, because he knows our heart.
And if our hearts in the wrong place, though we are His sons, we may not get it.
If we want to, we can kill the fatted calf, and throw a party for a few hundred friends.
If we are good sons He will allow it.
If we are not, well you might get a calf, but not fat, and you may only be allowed a few friends.
And if we were lost and then found
There will be a neighborhood block party for our return home.
Access to all the Father has to offer is yours.
What’s your Father wants in return?
Just follow the rules of the house.
Follow the rules of the land.
Follow the plan He has set out for us.
Listen and do as He asks.
Represent the family of heaven well in all that we do while here on earth.
Though He has sent us here on earth, we still must act and be like we came from Heaven.
Represent Heaven well and all we ask will be yours.
Call Him and He will be there.
Now go, but don’t forget your keys.
You will need them at some point to gain access in the Kingdom of God.
