Have you ever lost your keys? My daughter has lost our house key twice that I know about. It is a scary thought to lose a key. Anyone can get into whatever that key fits.
I think of Jesus as I am standing at the door knocking. It would be great to have a key. Wouldn't it? Maybe Jesus will be looking through the little keyhole and tell us to just use our key. What if I couldn't find it? Now that is a scary thought. Isn't it?
I wonder how many people have lost their keys to Jesus' door. Around here, you just go to the hardware store and get another one made. I don't think it will be that way at Jesus' door. Maybe we need to dig a little deeper in our purses or junk drawers and find OUR key. It is probably stuck in the lining of our purse or jammed way back in the drawer.
I don't want to be the one looking in and knowing that I don't have my key. I envision a wooden door with no handle but just a lock. There is no way in and He can't let me in without my key. Have you lost your key? Maybe its stuck somewhere.
