Jesus says in Revelation 1:17b-18, “…Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last. I am the Living One; I was dead, and behold I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.”
Keys…how we need them for so many things. Keys to our car, keys to our home, keys to our desk or filing cabinet in our office, keys to our luggage when we travel. Keys give us security. Keys protect our belongings, those things that are important to us.
Keys can also keep us out of places where we are not allowed, or places where we shouldn’t go. I don’t know about you, but I am glad that Jesus holds the keys of death and Hades and that through faith and trust in Him, we don’t have to worry about going there.
Have you trusted in Jesus? If not, why not do it today? It only takes a simple prayer in faith. You only have to believe that Jesus came, died for your sins, rose again and lives forever more. Halleluia!
