In Robert Duvall’s movie, The Apostle, there is a scene of a revival tent meeting where the evangelist has this great big bunch of keys and begins screaming that he has the “keys to the kingdom.” He jingles them in the faces of people to encourage people to respond to his message and to Jesus and “get saved.” It is a comical if not ludicrous mock-up of how some evangelists are perceived by our culture.


Following Jesus means entering the Kingdom. It means entering it through our lives and our actions. As such, there are a few important keys that might help us whether we are just trying out this guy called Jesus or we’ve been walking with him for many years.
