We live in a world where we depend heavily on automobiles as our mode of transportation. No doubt most of us come to the church building in an automobile. Automobiles engines are powerful, but that power is of no value to us until we turn on the engine. Therefore, the little piece of metal we call a “key” becomes important to us. When you get in your car to come to a church assembly you would not get in your care and expect it to start without a key. In essence, the key becomes the instrument through which the engine’s power becomes available to you.
As our car keys are the instrument through which the engine’s power becomes available to us in the physical realm, our “faith” is the key through which God’s power becomes available to us in the spiritual realm. The Bible reads, “Without faith it is impossible to please God because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him” (Hebrews 11:6). We place our faith in many things, but the key to a victorious life in Jesus, is a God centered faith.
