Thought for the week

Death Is Certain
"Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus by the new and living way that He has inaugurated for us, through the curtain, that is, His flesh." - Hebrews 10:20
What if God Himself asked you, “Why should I let you into My heaven?” How would you answer? I have used that question for many years to determine someone’s understands of salvation. Some people say, “Well, that’s a pointless question, because there is no God.” Others say, “I think God will let me into heaven. I’m basically a good person. I’ve done more good than bad.” And a few say, “I’ve got no chance to get into heaven. I could never believe God would accept me into heaven in light of some of the things I’ve done.”
Response #1: “There is no God.”
Because Christianity is about a relationship with God through faith in Jesus Christ, if a person doesn’t believe in God, they have no relationship with God. When death comes, there is only hell, where God is not. It is the only place that person would feel comfortable. If that person rejected God all their life, the last person they would want to spend eternity with is Him. God loves us enough to give us free will to choose or reject a relationship with Him.
Response #2: “I’ve done more good than bad.”
This is a complete misunderstanding of Christianity. The Bible says if we’re going to get to heaven by good deeds, we must be perfect. Nobody is except Jesus. Since none of us are, we need God’s grace and mercy to get in. We can receive this through faith. It means believing sinless Jesus paid the penalty for all our sins. He took the judgment we deserve on Himself through His death on the cross. That’s why His grace is so amazing. This leads to the next response.
Response #3: “No one is so bad or has done such bad things that they can’t be forgiven through Jesus’ shed blood on the cross.”
Remember, this is why the grace of God is so awesome. Jesus died for sinners. That means He died for us all, no matter what we have done. No sin is stronger than the forgiveness of the cross. This is great news – good news for all. Will you believe it? When you do, you receive your ticket to heaven
