“I’ll just bore me a hole and pull myself in.” A man said as he related how he would get into heaven.
“That’s funny,” I replied, “But where would you start boring? Wouldn’t it be easier to use the door? Besides if someone decided to bore through the wall or come in through a window of your house, how would you react?”
“I’d get my shotgun and blow ‘em away!”
“’Cause they’s up to no good.”
“It works the same way to get into heaven. You need to come in through the door – Jesus. It’s the only way. God wouldn’t allow any no-goods into heaven. Only people who have trusted in Jesus as their Savior would be allowed in. If you trust in Jesus, you will hear ‘c’mon in’ when you stand at heaven’s gate.”
I am so glad that someone cared enough about me to tell me what the Bible says about getting into heaven. The only way is Jesus!
“Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” John 10:7-10.
