Unlock the Door

“I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind on earth must be what is already bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth must be what is already loosed in heaven." -Matthew 16:19

Recently we had new keys made for our office. Our office manager instructed me to go to a local lock and key store. I had never been to a store just for keys, but when I went inside what I found was pretty cool.

There were big keys, small keys, new keys, old keys - I felt a bit like Dr. Seuss! There were beautiful, old, ornate keys, and some that were plain and modern too. There were rainbow keys, leopard keys, flower keys - you name it, they had it.

I thought about how this relates to us as children of God.

Each one of use is like a key. Every key is different; no key is the same. Each one is made to unlock a different lock, a special kind of lock, to a door that no one else can open. Because God has made us all different, God has fashioned us as keys - keys to unlock the doors leading to other people's lives. Have you ever had a close friend you felt understood you completely? Have you ever had someone in your life who helped you walk through a difficult time, because they had been there themselves?

We are created to open doors to cities, to communities, to nations - and to people who are the gatekeepers of those places. What door has God fashioned you for?
