Topic: Lock (03/06/06)

TITLE: Your Will is a Lock, the Lord is the Key

Locks were invented to keep out or to keep in. They are construted of strong metal either operated by combination or with a key. Not all locks are made of a physical structure though.

Do you realize that the will of man is a spiritual lock. Your will is so strong that you can lock the devil out to lock the Lord in your heart. Or your will can lock God out and lock the devil in. God can do anything, however God will not overpower man's will. God has given us a choice to serve him or serve the devil.

Before salvation can happen you have to invite God in. By doing so you are unlocking the will in your heart to live for him. In return you are locking the devil out of your will because no man can serve two masters, you must choose.

Allow the Lord to unlock the different doors of your heart that keep you from living an abundant life. Let the Lord, His instruction manual the bible, be the key. Remember it's up to you!

Very apt analogy.

An interesting take on the word "lock". Some illustrations of the struggle with our wills, would strength your message. Good job!

Breif, straight to the point. Good job.

That's right, the choice is ours! So often we forget that important principle. Great!
