The Keys To Freedom

Sep 13, 2020

Four Keys of Freedom: Humility, Take responsibility for your actions, thoughts and responses, Seek His face and not His hand, Forgiveness
Jesus’ death, burial, resurrection and ascension was the single, greatest event this world has seen. All authority in heaven and on earth was given to Jesus (Revelation 1:17-19) and He holds the keys of the kingdom. Now as His disciples, Jesus has given the keys to us (Matthew 16:17-18) . Freedom in Christ is a journey. As we walk with Him while in spiritual community, we can continue on the path to freedom as we are postured in humility, take responsibility for our lives, seek God’s face and not His hand and are predisposed to forgiveness. Freedom is worth it!

“And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. But He laid His right hand on me, saying to me, “Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last. I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death.” –‭‭Revelation‬ ‭1:17-18‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

“Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” -Matthew‬ ‭16:17-19 ‭NKJV
