Today as I share a piece of my heart with you, keep in mind that there is only ONE way to the Father...
Last week, my husband and I went with my son and his bride to the airport. It was somewhat of a sad day as we had to say goodbye to our son who was going overseas to serve our country in Korea for the next 13 months. Once he got checked in at the airport counter, we had a pleasant surprise... the airlines gave all of us security clearance and allowed us to go to his gate with him and wait there with him.
It was a wonderful gesture on the Delta airlines to give us more time with our son.
I have been thinking all week about that "security clearance" ticket that we received and I wonder how many people are living day to day without Christ and thinking that in the end that they will get a "security clearance" ticket to enter heaven.
DO YOU KNOW PEOPLE THAT ARE "good" PEOPLE BUT FAR FROM CHRIST?
I have been friends for the past 17 years with someone who is a very good person....
-She is kind.
-She is giving.
-She is loving.
-She obeys the law.
-She is an awesome Mom.
-She gives money to charity.
-She doesn't cuss.
-She doesn't drink.
-She is faithful to her husband.
Despite all the good that my friend does, there is one element missing in her life...she does not have a personal relationship with Christ.
Doing good does not make you any more of a Christ follower, than drinking tea makes you southern. You must know Him personally!! There will be no "passes" given out for good behavior at the pearly gates.
1 JOHN 4:15
"Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God."
" Jesus said, I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me."
HAVE YOU ASKED CHRIST IN YOUR HEART?
Don't wait...today is your day!
Dear Lord, I am a sinner. I am asking you to forgive me of my sins. I believe that You sent Your Son to die for me and I receive Your forgiveness today. Please wash me white as snow and help me to live a life that is pleasing to You. I ask You now to live in me and guide me to be all I can be with You. AMEN
It's that simple. If you have prayed this sinners prayer - you now possess your "security clearance" ticket to heaven. May you be empowered with His grace as you walk forward from this day on! See you there!!
