This week’s sermon title is “Keepers of the Key.” What is the key to all of existence? The knowledge of God. Without such knowledge one can only live in darkness. The knowledge of God is the light of life. In His letter to the church in Philadelphia, Jesus has nothing critical to say about that congregation. He does give an accurate analysis of their situation, namely, that they are surrounded by darkness and much opposition. But they have held firm, they have kept the key. In Matthew’s gospel we hear Jesus saying He’s giving keys to His disciples. They must keep them; they must use them. We are keepers of the key.
