A lot of us don’t have the authority of the key’s because we’re following the wrong agenda. We need to make sure we are on God’s kingdom program. Jesus tells us how to get on that program in ( Matthew 16:24 ) when He say, if anyone wishes to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. Living on a kingdom agenda means giving up the rights to your life. There’s only one reason to take up a cross, and that’s to die on it. Our problem in the church today is that we have to many Christians who are still in charge of their lives. But if you are running your own existence, you can’t have God’s victory and God’s authority. When you die, you relinquish all rights to yourself. We are to die each day in the sense of giving up our rights and our plans. As Paul put it, I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who lives, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and delivered Himself up for me ( Galatians 2:20 ).
