Daily Good News – The Key to Everything

“I am the living one. I died, but look–I am alive forever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and the grave” (Revelation 1:18).

There’s nothing more frustrating than losing your keys, but what sweet relief when you find them!

Today, too many people are running around trying to find the keys that will unlock the purpose of their lives. How is the confusion of life to be understood? What is your place in society? Are there special glasses that you put on and that make everything clear?

Some people come up with all sorts of lenses by which they try to understand life, and they obsess over them endlessly. For some people its politics, for others it’s a great social cause. For some it’s just fun. Some people try to make conspiracy theories – even religious ones – the lenses through which they understand the world; and there are plenty who try to understand it through alcohol.

Are there keys for understanding life? Yes, there are. The keys are Jesus Christ and the cross. That’s the only set of keys that can give us sanity, purpose, and peace.

This is not an obvious truth; it can even be a ridiculous thing to those who don’t see it. You can even be a Christian who doesn’t understand this. You can try to use prophecy, ritual, judgment, dogma, and all kinds of other ‘Christian’ lenses in order to understand the world. But all of them will fall short, until you find the true keys.

Whatever dilemma you are facing in your life, Christ has the keys. The realisation that Jesus Christ and the cross are the centre of everything is one of the greatest ‘aha’ moments you can have. It all starts from there. And when you accept this as the centre of your life, everything will start to fall into place as you journey into eternity.
