Who Gave YOU the Right....?

Blessed are those that do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates of the city. Revelation 22:14

As this Scripture has rolled around in me this week, I thought about our "rights." Currently, we have the right to bear arms, to speak freely, and to be free. I thank God for all these rights as a citizen of these great United States. Now, through the blood of the Lamb, we have also been given rights in God's kingdom as well. We have the right to pray, heal the sick, cast out demons, and access God's throne in the name of Jesus. Here though is one similarity of rights in both kingdoms--we have the right to obey or disobey. Depending on what we chose to DO, we will either experience life or death. Blessings or curses. As you witness/disciple this week, let them know that their choice to accept Christ has given them many rights. Let them know that as they DO His commandments-- they will eat eternal fruit, and receive a warm welcome through the gates of the city of the Holy One. Who has given us the right to life on earth and life in Heaven? God the Father through His Son, Jesus Christ! Enjoy them all!!! (-:
