How many passwords and pin numbers do you have to remember? ATM card, creditcard, internet banking, video store card, security systems, library card, email login…the list goes on. The thing about a password is that you have to get it exactly right before you can gain access.
How many times have you attempted to key in your password and realised that you have the ‘caPslOck’ key on? What about your wife’s birthday…is it 180969 or 091869 or 690819? Just keep running over all of your passwords in your mind for a moment and we could potentially have a really frustrating day ahead. A password is designed to give one individual special access to a possession or privilege. Without the correct password you cannot access all that is available to you even if it belongs to you.
There are many things which belong to you that you might not be accessing. The Lord has many wonderful things held in trust but we need the right pin number to open them. “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” John 14:6 If you will call upon His name then all the riches of life and peace can be yours. “If you ask anything in My name, I will do it” John 14:14 What do you need to access today? Forgiveness, hope, joy, restoration? They are all available if you know the password. “Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12
