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 died. She did not understand why he died so young. She told me her husband was 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 do not 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 am going to see Jesus face to face. Do I deserve that blessing?
We are going to be surprised by some of the people we see in heaven. We are also going to be surprised by some of the people who do not join us in heaven. Good men and women who have lived much better lives than us will not be there!
Almighty God created the heavens and the earth. He makes the laws that govern the universe. God makes the rules that govern the spiritual realm. Faith in Jesus Christ determines who enters the eternal kingdom of God!
God does not judge fairly. He judges justly. The Lord judges us according to His great love for us. God’s favor rests upon mankind!
God’s favor rests upon you today!
The Lord knows you are not perfect. He wants you to put your faith in the one who is perfect. When God looks at people who trust Jesus He sees the perfection of Jesus Christ.
Do not judge God through the veil of your limited understanding. Trust Jesus 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 lead us into eternal life. Jesus is the only way to an eternity of perfect blessing!
God the Father made a way for you to receive the eternal blessings only He can offer. Only you can choose to receive or reject His gift of eternal life. Make a wise choice!
