Gospel : Matthew 16:13-23
“Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven”
They “key” to heaven are the words of Christ. Peter and the disciples were given the commission to continue Christ’s work on earth in preaching the gospel . To draw men and women to Christ. For it is the will of God for us all.
God uses us to help others find their way to Christ. The kingdom’s door is wide open to those who believe . As a disciple of Christ , we are to teach them to observe all things as Christ has commanded . The church on earth will require only what heaven requires . Thus fulfilling God’s eternal plan for mankind.
