Jesus Is the Key

Read John 5:37–47

Growing up, Benjamin’s grandfather kept a box for extra house keys. After many years and as locks were changed, it became a collection of hundreds of spare keys. When family members needed a spare key, they would search through those keys hoping to find the right one. How frustrating it was to search through those hundreds of keys and not find the one they needed.

The religious leaders had studied the Scriptures, yet they chose not to believe in the One the Scriptures talked about.

“And the Father who sent me has himself testified concerning me. You have never heard his voice nor seen his form” (John 5:37).

Just like the box of keys, the Jewish leaders had the Scriptures and still chose not to believe what they read. They chose not to believe Jesus’ teachings and rejected the miracles He performed. Jesus is the key to the fulfillment of Scripture, the key to eternal life, and the key that sets hearts free. Jesus is the key that opens the door to eternity in heaven. Don’t leave earth without Him.

Thought for Today: Believe in Jesus. He is the key to unlocking your eternal home in heaven.
