For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified. Hebrews 10:14 NKJV
A prospective client walked into my office. She inquired about our services. She asked some questions. It was a divine appointment.
The woman’s husband passed away. She did not understand why he died so young. She told me her husband was very good to her. She said he had to be in heaven because he was such a good man.
I shared the gospel with her. She told me in no uncertain terms the gospel of Jesus Christ is not fair. She said it is not fair that a person who lived a sinful life could get to heaven the same way a good person could.
She could not comprehend that Jesus died on the cross for all people regardless of their sinful deeds. She could not understand why Jesus holds out His hand and offers forgiveness to everyone so freely. I had to agree with her. I don’t think it is fair either.
One day I will stand before Almighty God. I will spend eternity in His presence where there is fullness of joy. I’m going to see Jesus face to face.
I am going to be surprised by some of the people I see in heaven. I am also going to be surprised by some of the people I do not see in heaven. Good men and women who have lived much better lives than I will not be there!
Almighty God created the heavens and the earth. He makes the laws that govern the universe and nature. God makes the rules that govern the spiritual realm. The Lord decides what He requires of us to gain entry into heaven!
It isn’t fair because God does not judge fairly. He judges justly. He judges according to His great love for us. God’s favor rests upon mankind!
God’s favor rests upon you today!
Jesus is not asking you to be perfect. He is calling you to put your faith in the one who is perfect. He is calling you to receive His perfect love. When God looks at you He sees the perfection of Jesus Christ.
Do not judge God through the veil of your limited understanding. Trust Him to open the doorway into His perfect will for your life.
Trust Jesus to open the door that leads into the Kingdom of God. Only Jesus can make a way for us to enter into eternal life. Jesus is the way!
