The “Key” To It All

Here is the BMW M6. A beautiful piece of machine designed and engineered to make any driving experience a grand one. From comfort to luxury to performance this machine has it all! 

As eye catching and breath taking it is, it completely useless without one thing. One small thing designed to fit in your pocket, one small, usually inexpensive (even though this certain one can run around $175) thing can keep this car idle. It can keep it stationary, the engine ineffective, the horsepowers dead, the super chargers quiet; it can keep it locked up somewhere not doing what it’s designed to do. What is this powerful, small device? It’s the key.

Now for the whole point of this post. No, I’m not a salesman for BMW or their key fobs. I want to show you what was revealed to me a few months back.

The church is primed to be a soul winning, life impacting, Holy Ghost powered, movement destined to fulfill the Great Commission. But as beautiful as our congregations are, as dynamic our worship services can be, as awe inspiring our sermons can be; if we lack one small, simple thing we can be ineffective.

“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” – Hebrews 11:6 (NKJV)

Faith is the key to it all. With faith the size of a mustard seed we can move mountains. We have to get back to living, depending, praying, seeking God, worshipping on faith. Faith is the key that activates the whole thing. A lot of times we want to have it all figured out, it all lined out, no surprises; but while planning and being organized is a great thing, there has to be a factor of faith inside the whole thing. Faith helps us through the unknown. It helps us lean on the Lord and not our own understanding. Faith turns our focus on God and not on the problem.
