We are capable of doing just about everything else, we need. The only thing that we have had trouble with is escaping death…
That was until Jesus came and bridged this gap for us.
When Jesus died on that cross and rose again, three days later, He opened the door for us to be able to stand before our Maker.
He paid the price for the sin of this world and made things right for us with God.
This was a gift that is impossible for us to fathom.
Getting to heaven can not be accomplished by:
1. Our actions – the only way to heaven is by accepting Jesus Christ in to your life as your personal savior.
It is written, “Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.” John 14:6
2. We can not buy our way into heaven – no matter how much we put into the collection plate at church, there is no amount of money that can replace the price that Jesus paid, on our account, on that cross.
“Jesus sat down near the collection box in the Temple and watched as the crowds dropped in their money. Many rich people put in large amounts.
Then a poor widow came and dropped in two small coins.
Jesus called his disciples to him and said, “I tell you the truth, this poor widow has given more than all the others who are making contributions.
For they gave a tiny part of their surplus, but she, poor as she is, has given everything she had to live on.” Mark 12:41-44
As we can not pay the price for our sins, Jesus does want all we have to offer when we accept Him into our lives.
I have no idea where this message finds you, but my guess is you face challenges everyday, as we all do and sometimes we don’t know where to turn…
I suggest that the next time that you are faced with challenges, you turn to the only person that is qualified to help all of us and that is to the cross and the man who paid the price on that cross, Jesus Christ.
As Always, Here’s to Your LifetoSuccess,
God Bless You,
